8-Bit Music Theory released another video regarding Austin Wintory, this time featuring the composer himself who was very surprised with the last material analysing his main themes and was eager to collaborate.
In the video the host analysed the main theme for The Pathless.
Austin Wintory talked a bit about his composing process and what happens in his head while making music. He also said that while developing a phrase he thinks about how it will fit to the other parts of the theme since the bigger context is important in creating musical landscapes. Also mentioned that how a certain phrase affects him is important as well.
In the video the host analysed the main theme for The Pathless, Wintory’s recent project. The theme is another quite simple one but also beautiful and unique. The whole soundtrack is very interesting as this game has mythic-like story and vibes, like the stories being told for the future generations. The composer wanted to represent this folklore in the score so he used instruments like various world percussion, nyckelharpa, viola da gamba, oud, bass kazoo, Tuvan throat singers – in addition to the orchestra.
The Pathless score is the best soundtrack by Austin Wintory.
The results are outstanding, to me and many others The Pathless score is the best soundtrack by Austin Wintory. It is really worth to get to know this music.
