On this week’s episode, the Dead Air crew sits down to dissect how Graves finds signature sounds in the real world, and how he uses them to create unsettling atmospheres.” Listen to the podcast.

“As games become more and more immersive with photorealistic graphics and compelling storylines, high production quality demands a great music score. This is where my guest Jason Graves comes in. For his work on Far Cry Primal, a game set in the stone age, Jason created an entirely organic score, blending sounds created from natural materials, such as wood, bushes, bones, antlers, clay pots, as well as a ram’s horn, wooden flutes, female vocals, and an instrument called an Aztec Death Whistle.” Listen to the full interview.

WSHU Interview

“Far Cry Primal, from Ubisoft, takes us back in time. Waaaaaay back! To 10,000 BCE, in fact. Composing the music created a unique challenge for Jason Graves, who assembled a Stone Age “shopping list” of bones, rocks, antlers and rattles to create a score that’s as visceral as the game. I talked with Jason about how he unleashed his inner caveman.” WSHU Interview

Far Cry Primal

“Bamboo. Plants. Clay plots. Gravel. These might seem like odd choices for instruments under normal circumstances, but for Far Cry Primal’s BAFTA-Award winning composer, they were perfect. Jason Graves reached deep into humanity’s musical past to craft a soundtrack that would enhance the experience of playing through Primal’s Stone Age setting.” Read the complete article here.
