Also out today, the digital edition of the Headlander soundtrack by David Earl, available in a bundle on Steam. David wrote up an article about crafting the soundtrack for the PlayStation Blog, if you are at all interested in his tools and inspirations, it’s a great read!
When I heard that Headlander was following a retro-future narrative inspired by Logan’s Run, Silent Running, Zardoz, and other 70’s sci-fi, I simply tapped my already fiercely nostalgic mind for content. I knew what influences I had to honor in this score, and knew what tools I was going to have to use to satisfy my needs. Right off the bat, I decided on using tape and analog synthesizers. I’d still use my software of choice, Logic Pro, but mostly just as a recording device….
2 Player Productions put together a music video for one of the songs David wrote for the game, which features writhing robots and strutting Shepherds, and will ear-worm itself into your useless and outdated organic human brain head for all eternity. Watch it below!
