Sumthing Else Music Works, the premier record label dedicated to licensing and distributing video game soundtracks, announces the CD release of the original soundtrack to Ubisoft’s open world extreme sports game, Steep. Featuring the game’s post-rock instrumental score composed by Zikali, a European collective of music composition and sound design artists, the STEEP Original Soundtrack will be released on CD in stores and available for digital download from http://www.sumthing.com on February 17.
The musical artistic direction consists of the encounter between a post-rock formation (drums, bass, guitars, synths), to which is added an orchestral dimension (strings, brass) and a set of original instruments (hang drum, duduk) that define the sound identity of the project. The energy of the rider is represented by a modern and electric sound associated with the action; And the orchestra characterizes the different places (summits, narrow corridor or wide spaces) by the variety of its modes of play, bringing a strong emotional dimension. – Zikali
In Steep, players drop in to the Alps and ski, snowboard, wingsuit and paraglide through the game’s massive open world playground, filled with exhilarating challenges and breathtaking views. Developed by Ubisoft Annecy, Steep is designed for a culture that’s all about sharing experiences with the world. Steep features seamless multiplayer, populating the world with players as they naturally explore the Alps. Players and friends across the globe can take on challenges together or compete with each other to snag the top spot on the leaderboards. In addition to the Alps, Alaska will be available as a free game update on February 24th.
