If you’re into ethereal, space-like music from your games, then you might want to check out the space video game SUPERNOVA, and more importantly it’s soundtrack which was just releases yesterday. Composer Olivier Derivière (Remember Me, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag – Freedom Cry) has released music from the Namco Bandai game, titled SUPERNOVA Volume 1: Through The Portal, which features a combination of his own talents as well as those of John Kurlander (The Lord of the Rings) and the Philharmonia Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios, London.
Derivière has roots in classical music composition as well as coding games and music and attending coding and demo parties in his early days. A graduate of Berklee College of Music, he’s since developed his skill, creating music for games like Obscure and has contributed to scores such as Alone in the Dark (2008), giving him a history with the atmospheric.
“The musical journey of the OST follows a big crescendo from a star’s birth to its supernova,” explains Derivière. “Volume 1 is about the first planet, more will come as the game progressively extends its universe to new worlds. This is only the beginning.
