Here’s a taste of the incredible music in Tearaway

Head of audio Kenny Young goes behind the music

Every time I see a new aspect of Tearaway in more detail, I’m just taken aback by how incredible of a game it’s shaped up to be. Today is no exception, because Sony has posted a new video as part of a series of behind-the-scenes videos for the title. This one’s presented by Media Molecule’s head of audio Kenny Young to talk about the sound and music design.

The video features a taste of the music in the game, and I think the best word to describe it is pleasant. One specific example (which Kenny himself points out), is seemingly way out of left field — a folk-ish dubstep track. It sounds odd, but within the context of Tearaway somehow it just works. Now I see why the soundtrack is available as a pre-order bonus.
