Olivier Deriviere uses experimental instruments for his latest soundtrack
Olivier Deriviere is a French composer known for his innovative scoring approaches on titles such as Remember Me, Of Orcs and Men, Freedom Cry, and Alone in the Dark. His latest score, dedicated to Spiders’ The Technomancer, is also innovative in its styles and instrumentation.
For this title, Deriviere focused on creating a “retropunk tribal sci-fi” score that captures the “harsh conditions of the people left all alone on Mars”. Reflecting this, all instruments on the title were custom-made from junk metal and plastic by Nicolas Bras.
Deriviere’s soundtrack for the title is available through Bandcamp. It features bonus from Of Orcs and Men recorded with Boston Cello Quartet and Bound by Flame performed by Ire to celebrate Deriviere’s longstanding collaboration with French developer Spiders.
