A few months ago, I met a young music composer who came to visit us at Novaquark. I heard some of the work he did before and I found it very good, perfectly in line with the spirit of the game. We discussed during half an hour, obviously sharing the same passion, when he finally told me: “well, in fact I started music when I was 5, won a gold medal from the conservatory in piano, training in orchestral direction, music composition and theory, and I’m playing four different instruments”.Well! That explained this talent I witnessed when I met Maxime Ferrieu, who has since agreed to become the composer for the music of Dual Universe!
After his classical music studies (piano, orchestration and composition), Maxime started to work as a composer in the television industry. As a gamer himself, he had very early a natural interest for interactive music and sound design for video games. Following his experiences on several indie productions, he now joins the Dual Universe team excited by the concept and the artistic direction.
Maxime has already produced two tracks for Dual Universe that we are happy to share with you today as a winter holiday gift! one track is an ambient music, in the spirit of what you can hear during your space exploration in the game. The second one is a more action-driven track, typical of combat scenes. We hope you’ll enjoy this music and we will of course post more on a regular basis, on Facebook and Twitter.
And don’t forget to check from time to time our soundcloud page to see – or more exactly to listen – what has been uploaded recently.
Happy Winter Holidays!
