Jason joined Patrick Phillips for a fourth time on Pop Culture Tonight, discussing his “powerful, tragic, dark, and most of all, epic” score for The Order: 1886. Listen to the full interview.
“The Order: 1886’s developers were very clear when approaching Jason: they wanted music that depicted the weight its protagonists carry. Violins and high woodwinds were thrown out, and violas and cellos doubled up. Contrabassoons, bass clarinets and contrabass clarinets reinforced the extreme low frequencies, and the sound for The Order: 1886’s score took shape. There is a lot to learn and enjoy in this episode.” Listen to the podcast here.
Sony has officially announced Jason as the composer for their biggest release of 2015, The Order: 1886. A digital copy of the soundtrack will be included with both the Premium and Collector’s Editions of the game. The complete score is over two hours long, spanning three years of music production.
