Soundelux Design Music Group Delivers Sound, Music for ‘Lost Planet 2’

From MIX Magazine:

Soundelux Design Music Group in Hollywood recently provided original music, voice-over recording and sound design for Lost Planet 2, Capcom’s new sequel to its third-person shooter videogame. Jamie Christopherson wrote the new main theme and the majority of the score for the game. A 96-piece live orchestra, said to be one of the largest ever used for a videogame title, recorded the theme. Capcom’s in-house composer, Marika Suzuki, wrote additional music. The game is scheduled for release this month in North America, Europe and Japan.

Christopherson, who also composed the score for the original Lost Planet game, says that the new score was inspired by music from classic science fiction films. “The main theme touches on the theme from the first game, but then takes it into an entirely new dimension,” he says. “It includes big, epic themes—massive music—to match the scope and scale of the game. Everything is bigger than life.”

Christopherson conducted the live orchestra in recording sessions at the landmark 20th Century Fox Recording Stage in Los Angeles. He also conducted a second, three-hour session involving live percussion. Shawn Murphy (Iron Man 2Saving Private Ryan) was scoring recordist/scoring mixer for both sessions.
