Struggles of Journey
Jenova Chen's D.I.C.E. Summit talk on my favorite game of last year, Journey, was moving for many reasons, but I was particularly moved when I heard that his team, thatgamecompany, went bankrupt in the struggle to finish the ...   read

"THRESHOLD"

This track encompasses most all of the music you encounter in the open desert after first stumbling on to the desert creatures. The flute (again Amy Tatum) leads the way, and now joined by viola solos by Rodney Wirtz. It's a dance of sorts (with accompanying flurries on harp, played by Charissa Barger and of course Tina on cello). I always felt the arrival of these little fish-like cloth creatures was very charming and wanted the music to feel sort of refreshing. A surprise, like maybe you are caught off guard by the playfulness found in the otherwise bleak world.

As the track moves on you hear more recurrences of the bass flute and a lot of the electronic textures from earlier in the score. There are some liberties taken with the album here that allow me to feature performances that otherwise in-game you can't ever hear (such as the reprise of the harp/flute duet that happens at 2:37).

Also noteworthy is that the orchestra makes it first, very subtle, appearance in this track at 4:12 (in-game when you see the meteor in the sky above you)

"ROAD OF TRIALS"

These cues accompany your sand surfing after leaving the open desert. For someone who really loves writing in order to feature great performers, these cues represent pure heaven. Tina, Amy, Charissa and Rodney play the living hell out of these cues, especially Tina around whose virtuosic cello solos this entire section was built. The orchestra makes a more pronounced appearance during the beautiful sunset tunnel right around 3:00. Recording this was also a delight. The orchestra in Macedonia (conducted by Oleg Kontradenko) played with a lot of emotion and lyricism that couldn't have fit Journey any better!

Fair warning to everyone: if you join me in Spla2n, more often than not my wife, LauLau, will also be in the same game, and she will destroy us all
