Music in Games: The Music of Ghost Recon Wildlands

Music plays a massive part in the atmosphere of a video game. Think back to the fun repetative sounds on the origial Mario titles and then to the modern game where the score is more powerful than most movies. 

In light of the upcoming release of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands, video game developers Ubisoft have released a new video showcasing the production of The Music of the Wildlands.

The soundtrack is produced by composer and multi-instrumentalist, Alain Johannes, who is most renown for his work on Walk The Moon, Eleven, Sound Garden, and collaborations with Queens of the Stone Age and Them Crooked Vultures,

Following a trip to Bolivia, Johannes discovered the music of local communities and introduced natural sounds to the video game. Johannes, alongside Manu Bachet and Ghislain Soufflet, had his home full of guitars, cellos, drums, saxophones and various other instruments prepared for the project. Unlike other soundtracks, Johannes then recorded his instrumental reactions to the visuals and cinematography of the game. This led to organic creation of the true Music of the Wildlands.
