I rarely ever talk about video games on Eat This Music or on the radio program, but I kind of do feel obliged to when I get sent a press release that has something to do with music, even it is about a video game.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is the latest game in the Tom Clancy series. I have to admit, I am not the most knowledgable person when it comes to the Tom Clancy series of video games. I still like to play Fallout 4 from time to time, which I think has an amazing soundtrack, same for Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas… to an extent.
However, one of the many reasons I wanted to cover this release I was sent is because the composer of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is Alain Johannes, a Chile-native that has created and working with numerous high-profile bands, including: Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, and Arctic Monkeys, just to name a few.
Working alongside industry veterans Manu Bachet (Music Supervisor) and Ghislain Soufflet (Audio Director), Alain has been able to put together an original and very artistic soundtrack for a game that is essentially reinventing the Tom Clancy wheel, so to speak.
Head on over to Ubisoft Australia for more. You can watch the creation process of how the soundtrack was put together with the help of more people than just Alain, Manu and Ghislain, below.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is scheduled for release on 7 March, 2017 via Ubisoft Australia.
