RIYL: Classical music mixed with a bit of electronica, The Halo Soundtrack

Label: iam8bit / Fugitive Games

Indie games are blowing up these days.  Into The Stars is a Kickstarter project from Fugitive Games with some serious momentum behind it.  The soundtrack, with music by composer Jack Wall (Myst, Call Of Duty, Mass Effect, and more), is being pressed on black vinyl with a small amount of splatter that if you look at it for too long you’ll feel like you’re disappearing into deep space yourself.  It’s quite possibly the best combination of custom vinyl, artwork, and subject matter I’ve seen.

iam8bit, Fugitive Games and Wall of Sound have collaged our collective love for all things cosmic to mint the soundtrack for Into the Stars on glorious vinyl!

Composed by the legendary Jack Wall - a maestro with credits on tiny games like Mass Effect, Call of Duty and Myst - the music ranges from soft, classical exploration cues to perilous, intense space battle action.

Artist Arno Kiss compliments the sounds with an original album cover that recalls the vastness and wonder of the cosmos in a wholly tangible way (i.e. the stars on the cover are actually die-cut holes, allowing the metallic gold foil sleeve behind it to shimmer and shine.

The audio was mastered specifically for vinyl at the world-famous Telegraph Mastering Studio; and the records are 180-gram heavyweight vinyl, making them less prone to warping over time.
