Prince of Persia Soundtrack Compsed By Tom Salta
Posted April 6, 2010 by Jereme Puik
Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is the newest release in the Prince of Persia series and has Ubisoft starting from the ground up yet again. At this past PAX East in Boston they showed off specific parts of the campaign that have you playing through the story as a sequel to Sands of Time. The game itself is scheduled to release commercially for the Nintendo Wii on May 18th, 2010.
"An outstanding composer, Tom Salta is extremely passionate and truly committed to our project," said Aurelien Baguerre, audio director for Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands™ on the Nintendo Wii™. "The action and gameplay are remarkably enhanced by Tom's beautiful orchestrations which unmistakably evoke Persian colors, providing a grandiose and emotional dimension to our game."
To fully immerse players in the Prince's new adventure, Salta composed and produced an intensely atmospheric and intricately woven original music score that captures the essence and spirit of the original Prince of Persia® The Sands of Time and supports the new story and gameplay of Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands™ with a contemporary world music aesthetic. The score features performances recorded with globally revered percussionist Bashiri Johnson, dark hypnotic vocals by world music singer Azam Ali and ethereal vocals by international recording artist Judith Bérard, as well as world music and middle-eastern instrumentation such as doubek, kora, khangira, bowhammer cymbalom, lakota slide, walimba, ney, duduk and custom made instruments.
