In this video from Square Enix, the BAFTA-winning composer talks about finding the right sound for Lara’s island adventure and dealing with the music from the series’ past. Graves racked up BAFTA wins for his work on “Dead Space” on the tracks “Original Score” and “Use of Audio,” and it looks like he’s trying to bring the same sort of moodiness to “Tomb Raider.”
Around the 3:00 mark, you can get a full listen to Lara’s new theme–what do you think? I might just be filling in the details, but for about a split second, it sounds like a downbeat version of Nathan Drake’s theme, with the sweeping horns and jungle percussion.
“Tomb Raider” will be available on March 5th for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
