We have decided to showcase some of the music that will be included in Cairn. When we started talking about which way to go with the music, lots of different ideas and concepts were brought up. We wanted the music to have the epic and catchy elements of a soundtracks like Warcraft 2, but we also wanted it to have a more aggressive, militaristic, feeling like Command and Conquer.
After some arguing, brain storming and a few sound tests we decided to go for an orchestral score with a heavy dose of metal guitar. Here are a few tracks and I hope you enjoy them!
Hello, my name is José Mora-Jiménez and I’m the one in charge of making the music and sounds for Cairn.
I’ve been writing modern classical music for about ten years and I since more recent times I’ve been also writing music for games and other media. You can check my works and bio here: http://www.musicvortex.nl/ and here http://www.josemorajimenez.com/
I started working in the game since last April. When I first had contact with the team and we discussed about the musical direction of the project, I was very pleased to hear that I was going to be able to freely mix two of my all time favorite music styles: Orchestral Music and Metal!
I hope to be sharing some of the music I’ve made for the game very soon, I would also be telling you more about the process of writing the music.
