New York (March 18, 2015) - Sumthing Else Music Works, through its licensing relationship with Capcom, today announced that the official soundtrack for Resident Evil® Revelations 2 is now available for digital download from Sumthing.com and other major digital music sites. The Resident Evil® Revelations 2 Original Soundtrack features over three hours of original score from Capcom's new entry in the ground-breaking survival horror video game series which has sold over 50 million units worldwide.
Defining a new musical direction for the series, the original score for Resident Evil Revelations 2 was created and supervised by Capcom's composer and sound director Kota Suzuki (Resident Evil® Revelations, Resident Evil® 6, Resident Evil® 5) in collaboration with film composer and multi-instrumentalist Nima Fakhrara ("Gatchaman," "The Pyramid," "The Courier") as well as composer and sound designer Ichiro Kohmoto (Resident Evil Revelations, Resident Evil® 0). The soundtrack was produced by Koyo Sonae. Music samples are available at Sumthing.com.
"Our main theme of focus was 'duality of sound' implemented through original instruments," describes Kota Suzuki, composer and sound director of the Resident Evil® series. "We assembled this compilation with two distinct genres of sound in mind. Aiming for the overall music to deliver a broad, airy feel, while at the same time introducing acoustic instruments to create gaps within the sound, the composition reduces how quickly players grow accustomed to the music, and allows for sound effects to easily create the game's desired atmosphere."
Describing Capcom's collaboration with Nima Fakhrara, a film composer renowned for creating unique instruments as the basis for his original scores, Kota Suzuki added, "We always kept aiming to provide players with a new sense of suspense and surprise with this installation. His productions possessed that particular element of darkness that worked perfectly with our[s]. After many brainstorming sessions we decided to use 'iron' and 'water' as our concepts in creating new instruments. And, after recording, we edited and mixed the sound with other tracks to create a truly unique sound...His touch was exactly what we needed to give our sound the definitive edge."
Evolving the episodic chapter set-up of the original Resident Evil Revelations, Resident Evil Revelations 2 initially released as a weekly series of four episodic downloads beginning on February 24, 2015.
