Halo 4 Original Soundtrack & Special Edition Remix Album Arrives Oct. 22nd
In addition to the original soundtrack from famed composer/producer Neil Davidge, renowned electronica musicians DJ Skee, Sander Van Doorn, Apocalyptica, Hundred Waters and more contribute to first ever Halo Remix Album as part of a Special Limited Edition Box Set
Microsoft and 343 Industries in conjunction with new soundtrack partner 7Hz Productions, have announced the Halo 4 Original Soundtrack (OST) produced by composer Neil Davidge of Massive Attack fame will be available online and in stores on October 22nd. The Halo 4 Original Soundtrack, featuring 15 tracks and over 75 minutes of unique music, marks the first time a new composer has taken the reins for the iconic series musical score since the launch of the original Halo game more than a decade ago.
The Halo 4 individually numbered and limited Special Edition 2-Disc Box Set will consist of the Halo 4 Remix Album, produced by Davidge in tandem with fourteen electronica producers and artists, including DJ Skee, Sander Van Doorn, Gui Boratto, Caspa, Apocalyptica, Hundred Waters, and more.
Pushing the musical envelope, Davidge and his production company enlisted popular electronica producers DJ Skee, Caspa, Sander Van Doorn & Julian Jordan, Gui Boratto, KOAN Sound, Matt Lange, Andrew Bayer, Norin & Rad, Alvin Risk, Bobby Tank, Maor Levi and Hundred Waters, in addition to rock act Apocalyptica and ex-Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, to create a 14-track remix disk based on the Original Soundtrack. When approached to work with Davidge, these artists not only took his work on the Halo 4 score and shaped it into their own unique sound, but kept true to the roots and feel of the Halo franchise, which has sold over 43 million game copies worldwide and generated nearly $3 billion in revenue.
