|Overview:||This session will provide insight into the creative process behind the soundtrack of Remember Me, from facing the challenge of convincing all concerned to take a chance on something so musically different from the standard cyberpunk-genre soundtrack, to distilling the sensation of the game's central theme of memory manipulation from a live orchestra, then seamlessly complementing the live instrumentations with electronic enhancements. We will describe our approach in recording and mixing to invent a riveting new sound, and the use of electronic processing, synth and samples-based libraries for increased flexibility in adapting the resulting sound to a specific gameplay mechanic and explore how music can become a real asset to the player's experience.|
