Sumthing Else Music Works, in collaboration with indie game developer, Studio Wildcard, are set to release the orchestral soundtrack to the upcoming launch of the dinosaur survival adventure game, ARK: Survival Evolved.

Composed by Gareth Coker (Ori and the Blind Forest), Studio Wildcard chose him for his  melodically-driven themes and motifs and saw fit to pair him up with the Philharmonia Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios in London.

Gareth’s mind-blowing sense of melody and uncanny expertise at reinforcing specific themes and emotions through his music helped shape the identity of ARK: Survival Evolved from the very beginning.

Starting with that iconic main theme written for our first announcement trailer, Gareth continued to deliver a huge and varied score that brought to life every part of the game, be it the beach, the mountains, the jungles, the desert, the caves, the EPIC boss battles and even the out-of-this-world science-fiction climax of ARK‘s End Game.

The score was so good, that we had no choice but to send Gareth to Abbey Road to record the entire thing with the 93-piece Philharmonia Orchestra! – Jesse Rapczak, Co-Founder and Co-Creative Director of Studio Wildcard

Coker’s critically acclaimed soundtrack for Ori and the Blind Forest was honored with several big awards, including the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences award for Outstanding Music Composition and SXSW Gaming Award for Excellence in Musical Score, and his success in the field led to him being awarded recognition as an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music

The official soundtrack album for ARK: Survival Evolved will be released August 29 via digital and streaming outlets worldwide through Sumthing Else Music Works
