Over The Alps
Game Developer : Stave Studios
Music and Sound Design : Andy Huckvale
My first video game, launched on the Apple Arcade platform.
I was tasked to compose music for the main theme, an intro sequence and various bits of action and background music. They also needed background atmospheres, foley and various sound fx for the game. This was a new avenue for me, as I’m used to writing to picture at the end of production. However the music needed to be written alongside the game development, so I chatted with the team about the atmosphere they wanted to evoke and looked through some of the illustrations to get an idea of the vibe.
This is an adventure set in the Alpine region during World War II, so I tried to mix the use of authentic Swiss folk instruments, 40s Swing era and also the type of film scoring techniques used in classic movie serials.
