Olivier Derivière’s latest soundtrack uses real-time generated music

Olivier Derivière, well known for his work on scores like Remember Me and Alone in the Dark, will see his latest soundtrack released next week alongside the game. This time around, Derivière scores GET EVEN, developed by The Farm 51 and published by BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe. As with most of his scores, Derivière dips into the realm of experimental music – this time by creating an immersive soundtrack that incorporates sounds from the game in a real-time generated, interactive score.

“Through the use of real-time MIDI, live musicians recorded in ambisonics, and other audio tricks, the gaming environment itself is now an orchestra waiting to be conducted, and everything in it is a potential instrument,” says Derivière. The score is rendered live in the game’s engine as the player progresses, reacting to and responding the player’s actions in the process.

The soundtrack will be available for purchase next week. For more information, visit Derivière’s official website.

About the Author

Emily McMillan

After graduating with a master's in teaching, I realized that I wasn't quite ready to leave video games and their soundtracks behind. I've been keeping in touch with the video game music world from Texas by working with VGMO and updating my own YouTube cover channel. I love the feeling that comes with the discovery of a brand new soundtrack, and always look forward to the next rekindling of that excitement. Along with teaching and writing, I also enjoy listening to film scores, classical music, and playing pretty much any RPG you can name.
