Focus Home Interactive today unveiled a new video for Bound by Flame, an action/role-playing game in the works at Spiders Studio, will arrive in Europe on May 9th, for PC, PS4, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. In this video illustrated by many new sequences and excerpts from the game's soundtrack, Olivier Derivière, a composer who won multiple awards for his work in video games (Remember Me, Assassin's Creed 4), talks about his work on Bound by Flame. This is also the opportunity to discover singer Iré Zhekova, who gives her voice to some of the game's musics.
These two artists first explain how they steeped the music in an atmosphere of loneliness and despair conveyed in the dark atmosphere of the game. They also describe how they combined a murmuring choir with the clear sound of a single voice full of emotion to produce a sense of contrast between the game hero and the flame demon possessing him. They invented an imaginary language for Iré's singing to explore the human voice and express emotions beyond the meaning of words and to express feelings of hope and fear.
