Michael Bross talks New 'n' Tasty music

Michael Bross reflects on the challenges of re-creating and expanding on a classic soundtrack for New 'n' Tasty.

We were very excited when Michael Bross, veteran Oddworld composer and sound designer who worked on Munch’s Oddysee and Stranger’s Wrath, started working with us from his current home at SomaTone Interactive.

Michael has writen for Audio Pro International about the challenge of re-creating and expanding a classic soundtrack for Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty.

“The one issue that came up on this production was that most of the original music for the original Abe’s Oddysee cutscenes was no longer available in source form,” Bross recalls. “What we decided to do was, instead of re-creating the original music note for note, we would take the approach of capturing the emotional spirit of the original tracks while infusing contemporary elements.”

Give it a read and start anticipating the sweet sounds of New ‘n’ Tasty! We’ll have some sugary samples to share with you before the PlayStation 4 version hits on July 22nd (23rd outside North America), so keep your eyes and ears unstitched at us here on Oddworld.com, and on our Facebook and Twitter so you can get all the latest teasing and tempting from us!
