Last year’s award winning thriller Black Swan had an amazing score thanks to Clint Mansell. Now Mansell has confirmed that hes working on Mass Effect 3. In an interview with The Quietus the man behind Requiem For A Dream said:
I’m doing a video game this year actually. Mass Effect 3, As I was saying about Public Enemy and re-working old hip-hop tunes for Requiem, and kind of re-working old ballet tunes for Black Swan, with something like Mass Effect you’re more like a DJ, with all these elements. You’ve got the holding pattern, then the big explosion where you need the score to kick in. Then you need to take it off on a tangent. You’ve got all these different elements that change depending on what the player does. You have to figure out an overall symphony, but be able to break it down into component parts. You can bring the pain when required.
Mass Effect 3 releases this holiday season for the PC PS3 and 360.
