Composer Jason Graves on creating Tomb Raider’s music

Artist uses art to create more art

As much as I enjoy collecting various limited editions of movies and games for the behind-the-scenes featurettes, I hardly ever get around to viewing them. After watching this trailer though, I would love to learn more about the process that went into Tomb Raider’s soundscape. That “instrument” is nuts!

The earthy and percussion-heavy tones help compliment the jungle environment and set this reboot apart from its raiding brethren, or sistren, as the case may be. I’ve never really been too interested in raiding tombs, but this one might be worth getting shipwrecked for.
