Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Black Screen Records and video game composer David Housden have teamed up to release the original soundtrack to Mike Bithell's platinum-selling 2010 indie title Thomas Was Alone on colored 180g vinyl for the very first time. Featuring minimalist pianos and ambiances fused with lush strings and ethereal synths, both the game and soundtrack enjoyed rave reviews, receiving BAFTA nominations for ‘Best Story', ‘Best Original Music' and ‘Best Performance' (winner) as well as Develop nominations for Best Audio Contribution and Best Use of Narrative (winner), and Honorable mentions from the Independent Games Festival for Excellence in Visual Design and Excellence in Audio.
"The soundtrack for Thomas Was Alone was my first project in the industry and thus holds a very dear place in my heart," says Housden. "I remember writing it as a newly graduated student on a 2-octave MIDI keyboard, on a second hand copy of Pro-Tools LE, with a couple of pieces of software to my name. Being forced to work within such limitations brought a heightened focus on creativity and with it, a very honest and personal end result. I never would have anticipated the journey it has led me on, so here we are 5 years later, and it's my absolute pleasure to celebrate the anniversary of its release with this beautiful vinyl."
Featuring the original album completely remastered for vinyl by Christian Bethge at RAMA Tonstudio, Mannheim, complete with brand new tracks written exclusively for the release of Benjamin's Flight DLC on PS4 and Vita.
