I'm not too keen on Balfe's stuff... Too bombastic for my tastes. But hey, there's three composers. There's bound to be some music I'll like! :p

Kyd and Balfe are definitely not composing. :(

I would like it the most if it were just three entirely new composers. Keeps it fresh and surprising. ;)

Hanz Zimmer
Chopin
Ennio Morricone

Don't get cheap on me Ubi!

I felt that Lorne Balfe's compositions were dramatic and I liked it. Who ever they choose, there's bound to be a few tracks that I might like.


Hanz Zimmer
Chopin
Ennio Morricone

Good choices :)

I think Thomas Bergersen is also quite good.

You're a little late, it was posted in a soundtrack thread yesterday, though I suppose it was easy to miss. And yeah, 3 composers is crazy.

Also, I'm almost certain at this point that one of the composers is Olivier Derivère. I'll eat a hat if he isn't confirmed to be on the team.

Why is everyone so sure that Olivier is one of the composers?

Aphex_Tim
06-14-2014, 10:11 PM
I'm not sure. I'm just hoping he's one of 'em.

He made Freedom Cry, so it makes sense. Maybe it was like a "test". And it was a really great job, so I'm pretty sure he comes back on ACU.

Obviously Ubi learned the secret to necromancy and he got Beethoven, Mozart and Brahms to compose the soundtrack.

I loooove Mozart. He was Austrian, you know. But for this kind of work... He's a little bit light. So I tend to go for the heavier guys.

(joke is Arno is half-Austrian according to what I've seen. Also I hope someone caught the reference here)

Who caressssssss

As long as its good. 3 doesnt always mean better, they could have artistic conflicts.

Also, if the music is good, the game could be crap, or vice versa.

I'll hold you to that.

Feeling the pressure already.


Why is everyone so sure that Olivier is one of the composers?

Olivier's known for combining classic orchestra with electronica, which is exactly what the composition in the E3 demos sounded like (during the stealth part of the SP demo specifically) - similar to Jesper Kyd, but the main difference is that Derivière's music doesn't have a strong emphasis on guitars and human vocals. I also checked out Olivier's other material, and it sounded very similar to the music in the demos.

Of course, I could be entirely wrong and this'll all blow up in my face, but only time will tell. Give us those interviews Loomer!

Don't know if already posted, but a very short preview of Unity's OST was released in an E3 fan kit:

Jesper Kyd and Lorne Balfe aren't returning, it was confirmed on Loomer's and Balfe's twitter accounts.

I love it already! That second one has this nice gloomy feel to it that will be extremely suitable. The last one is ****ing amazing for stealth.

I don't know who it is but whoever it is, I'm already pleased.

That preview was kinda meh tbh

I know it's only short and we obviously can't judge now but I didn't think much of that. Remember the first snippet of AC4's soundtrack? That was awesome and reflected the other tracks.

I'm being ridiculous.

You're never satisfied with anything, but in all honesty I felt the same way about the previews on first listen. I like the snippets now though, especially the first one.

EDIT: I thought you were Mayrice, ignore the first thing I said.

The last part reminds me of some of the Brotherhood music, specifically a combination of Countdown and the song that plays when infiltrating the vatican, except gloomy and darker and Brotherhood has a lot of my favorite music so yeah pretty excited.

Agree. And, yeah, sorry to burst your bubble but the last one isn't part of the soundtrack. It's something else.

I heard those in my kit too. It sounds awesome so far! Can't wait for the full versions and more of them in-game!

Ahh too bad that ****'s good ;P the other two are still just as good though!

I'm eager to hear their stealthy type music, I hope it can capture some of that gloomy feeling.

Yup, I'm with you on that. I love stealth themes, the one in AC4 (The Buccaneers) is definitely one of my favourites.

Olivier Deriviere is my least favorite AC composer. Freedom Cry's music was way too bombastic and didn't fit with the rest of the franchise at all. I would be okay with Brian Tyler, Winifred Philips (AC Liberation) or someone completely new.

New faces.

Well until the games released there's nothing to say really. Anybody got any knowledge of any of those people?

EDIT: Update OP by the way

Aw man, the cinematic trailer was the perfect opportunity to showcase their work. Just a little taste of it.

I'll need to rewatch the demos cause I don't remember most of the music in those.
