Civilization VI to feature an orchestral soundtrack led by Knorr and Tin
On October 21, Firaxis and 2K will release the long-awaited strategy title Civilization VI. Inspired by the success of Civilization V‘s score, the game’s soundtrack will feature an original orchestral score principally composed, orchestrated, and mixed by Geoff Knorr (Civilization V, Galactic Civilizations III). He’ll be joined by assistant composers Roland Rizzo (XCOM: Enemy Unknown), Griffin Cohen (Civilization: Beyond Earth), and Phill Boucher (assistant composer on numerous film scores).
The main theme for Civilization VI will be penned by Christopher Tin. The artist famously won two Grammy awards for his world music album Calling All Dawns featuring the opening theme for Civilization IV, “Baba Yetu”. The track, entitled “Sogno di Volare” (translated: “The Dream of Flight”), promises to capture the feeling of of “both the physical exploration of seeking new lands, [as well as] mental exploration of expanding the frontiers of science and philosophy.”
As yet, no announcement has been made as to whether Civilization VI‘s score will be commercially released.
