Vince DiCola revisits his Transformers work for Angry Birds
Vince DiCola first came to fame with his synth-heavy scores for Transformers: The Animated Series and Rocky IV. In recent years, he has been working increasingly in the video game sector through Gran Turismo 4, Saturday Morning RPG, and the Turrican Soundtrack Anthology. He has also recently gained representation in this area from Jayson Napolitano of Scarlet Moon Artists, one of his biggest fans.
DiCola recently revealed that he has been asked to write the music for Angry Birds: Transformers on behalf of Rovio. As he discusses in the video below, Rovio “wanted the [game] to be more like the animated feature that I scored, as opposed to the live-action stuff”. By emulating vintage synthesizers and offering catchy tunes, he and writing partner Kenny Meriedeth paid homage to the sound of the original series.
In a recent statement, DiCola revealed that he and Meriedeth are in fact working on two video games. The second has yet to be revealed due to NDA reasons, but we’ll let you know as soon as more details emerge.
