A gamer herself, Elliot describes the chance to contribute to the sport’s soundtrack as “an absolute dream come true” and “a giant one off [her] bucket listing.”
The monitor is appropriately dreary and mysterious, but it surely additionally strikes a shocking magnificence. Elliot’s voice soars over a dramatic soundscape as “Misplaced Once more” turns from a solitary piano ballad to an orchestra-lead climax.

Prior to now, I’ve usually thought concerning the concept of waking up someplace totally different — one other world, one other dimension, the place I slot in and “the place I’m sufficient for me!” When writing the theme music to this sport, I felt it was the proper alternative to pursue that idea extra.
The premise of the sport very a lot entails being trapped and feeling hopeless — I’ve been very vocal about my expertise with Borderline Persona Dysfunction and the challenges that include the analysis, so I channeled my very own battle with my very own metaphorical jail into this music.
I used to be impressed massively by the fantasy style — I like its world constructing and the sensation of having the ability to “escape” from my very own actuality. There’s nothing extra soothing to me than getting misplaced within the worlds of books, video video games, and movies. A few of my favourite worlds are from Star Wars, Horizon, Zelda, Pokemon and lots of extra!
I’m additionally an enormous fan of Journey Time. Halfrhymes (my closest collaborator) and I at all times watch it throughout little breaks within the studio collectively. It’s such an exquisite sequence that pulls you into its world, makes you neglect actuality for a second and plucks at your heartstrings. It at all times evokes us.
The Callisto Protocol:
I really feel like such a tease, however I used to be additionally actually impressed by the scene that the music scores within the sport, which I can’t say something about!! I attempted to place myself within the footwear of the characters and do the story justice. You’ll need to play the sport to see what I imply as a result of I’m actually sworn to secrecy!
Lastly, I’m so impressed by movie soundtracks — particularly after they have massive orchestral scores from the likes of Hans Zimmer and John Williams. I like the drama and melancholy it conveys. I felt like we allowed ourselves to be rather a lot bolder with the manufacturing on this music due to the collaboration with this epic sport and it was so liberating to department out in that manner sonically.
