This week’s cue comes from Tales of the Dread-Naught Kid, a puzzle game with a nautical theme. This music accompanies an overhead view of the world map, festooned with treasure-hunting, monsters, and other hallmarks of adventure.
This song was originally written for the end credits of the feature documentary Touché: A Blind Fencer’s Story, which I also scored. The lyrics reflect the theme of the film: maintaining inner strength and hope when the outside world feels remote.
The tune has been re-recorded and remastered for the newest album release from Natalie Nicole Gilbert, Recovery. The music has been transposed into a new key, putting Natalie’s vocals in a particularly gorgeous and expressive register. If you enjoy the tune, check out the entire album on SoundCloud, Spotify, or Apple Music.
George Adams’ psychological thriller Lady Usher is now available for streaming on Amazon Prime, YouTube, DirecTV, and many other streaming sources!
I had a (creepy) great time scoring this with a live string quartet and guitar. The soundtrack album will be released later this fall.
I’m happy to mention that DESTINYbit’s newest game Dice Legacy is now available for PC (via Steam) and Nintendo Switch! This real-time strategy game balances resource management, exploration and tech development — all in the uniquely beautiful setting of a ringworld.
Dice Legacy won the Most Original Game award at Gamescom 2021, and it’s not hard to see why: in this game the dice are real in-game entities with jobs, abilities, and physical personas.
I had a blast writing music for this game, which combines atmospheric orchestral scoring with solo performances by Simone Vitucci (cello), Mats Wester (nyckelharpa), and Eurielle (vocals).
The soundtrack is currently available as purchasable downloadable content for the game itself. A streaming release will follow in coming weeks. Stay tuned for more details!
