Dark Souls 2

Project Brief: 

We produced an original music score and sound design component created as a proof of concept pitch using the Dark Souls 2 video game visual trailer as an example.


This project formed part of a game audio proof of concept pitch to include trailer based sound design, compositional music score, foley recording, sound editing and sound and music mix services and creative consultation.

We started by removing the existing sound and music content from the original Dark Souls 2 trailer and then set about completely recomposing, developing and recreating a suitable sonic and musical accompaniment to the fantastic visual.

This process included recording tailored foley sound effects, layering ambient field recordings, composing an energetic and evolving musical score and producing and mixing an overall piece suitable for the emotional aesthetic of the exciting visual trailer.

The brief included communicating a cinematic and lifting aesthetic that could drive the visual and enhance the action and excitement conveyed in the visual trailer.
