Sumthing Else Music Works announced today that it has entered into a licensing agreement with Square Enix, the developers of the blockbuster video game Deus Ex: Human Revolution, to release the critically acclaimed original music score from the game. The Deus Ex: Human Revolution Original Soundtrack CD is scheduled for worldwide release on November 15th, 2011 to retail outlets through Sumthing Else Music Works www.sumthing.com, and for digital download at www.sumthingdigital.com, Amazon MP3, iTunes and other digital music sites.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution Original Soundtrack features 25 captivating compositions from the game’s original score composed by Michael McCann (ReGenesis, Splinter Cell: Double Agent, It’s All Gone Pete Tong). Renowned for his ambient cinematic scores and emotional organic soundscapes in film, television and video games, Michael McCann’s original music reflects the dark and beautifully visualized world of Deus Ex: Human Revolution and enhances the game’s unique mix of stealth, action, and role-playing genres. Set during a time of great innovation in neuroprosthetics, but also a time of chaos, conspiracy and a new social divide, the transhumanism-inspired soundtrack for Deus Ex: Human Revolution fuses various musical styles and thematic elements including cybernoir, futuristic renaissance and electrosymphonic ambience.
Composer Michael McCann said:
“There were close to 200 pieces of music created for the soundtrack for Deus Ex: Human Revolution and I’ve selected 50 of those cues to create the 25 arrangements on this album. Many of the cues are a mixture of different pieces of music from the game’s soundtrack, including alternate versions that were created for the various advertising trailers for the game. I have chosen these 25 to represent the arc of the game’s story, drawing from the styles and ideas that make up the full soundtrack.”
Sebastien Bisch, director of marketing and communications at Eidos-Montreal added:
“We are thrilled to partner with Sumthing Else Music Works to release the Deus Ex: Human Revolution Original Soundtrack. Michael McCann’s poignant music score captures the essence of Deus Ex: Human Revolution beautifully and now fans of the video game will be able to enjoy new arrangements of some of the game’s most emotive music tracks. This is a whole new way for people to be immersed in the Deus Ex: Human Revolution universe.”
