Varèse Sarabande Releases Garry Schyman’s TORN Science Fiction Video Game Soundtrack
Varèse Sarabande will release the original video game soundtrack to TORN on August 31, 2018. This is a soundtrack for the new and emerging realm of VR Video Games.
“TORN is one of the most interesting projects I have ever scored and it inspired me to create something I feel is very special musically,” said composer Garry Schyman. “This virtual reality game is like entering and being part of a fascinating dark mysterious film.”
TORN is a dark science-fiction mystery. Deep in a forgotten forest, video blogger Katherine Patterson discovers an abandoned mansion, filled with strange machines and disturbing experiments. This is the home of Dr. Lawrence Talbot, who was reported missing more than 64 years ago. Patterson realizes this could be worth millions, the story of her career. But when she meets Dr. Talbot in person — alive, trapped in a strange new dimension, and missing his body — Patterson realizes she was wrong. This is the story of a lifetime.
Composer Garry Schyman’s award-winning music spans nearly every audio-visual media, including feature films, prime-time television, and video games. His uniquely haunting orchestral scores for the globally acclaimed video games BIOSHOCK, BIOSHOCK 2, and BIOSHOCK INFINITE have earned him multiple awards, including top honors for Best Original Score from the British Academy of Film & Television (BAFTA) and the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences, establishing him as one of the world’s most celebrated composers of video game music.
TORN opens as a narrative puzzle game, then evolves into a dark, character-driven story as you slowly uncover the truth about Talbot, and the new dimension he calls “The Parallel.” Remember everything you see, for in Talbot’s world, truth is nothing more than the invention of the mind.
“The music, performed by some of the best players in LA at my favorite recording studio Fox’s Newman Scoring Stage, sounded so lovely and I could not be more pleased with these recordings,” said composer Garry Schyman.
The TORN video game was released on August 28th for PLAYSTATION.
