Recorded with a live orchestra, choir, and instruments from around the world, the Humankind soundtrack will take players on a voyage through time.
Paris, April 23rd – How would you tackle creating the music for a game that features 60 different cultures? With elegance and attention to authenticity, if you are Arnaud Roy, composer of all the music for Amplitude’s games thus far. We are excited and proud to welcome him back for the soundtrack of Humankind.
In our latest feature focus video, he takes us through the work and thinking that went into the creation of the Humankind soundtrack. It features over 8 hours of music, 90 minutes of live orchestra and choir, as well as 10 soloists and experts in traditional music playing instruments like the Chinese Guzheng harp, a Mesoamerican flute, a Baroque string trio, and a variety of Medieval wind instruments, just to name a few. There’s even a cithara from antiquity recreated by a Grecian harpist based on visuals from ancient fragments of pottery!
We could go on, but we would rather you go and have a listen. Please enjoy the latest installment in our Feature Focus series, #5, “Composing the Music”.
