The fourth installment of the behind-the-scenes video series for Alan Wake 2 delves deeper into the creation of its haunting music and atmospheric soundscapes. Enhancing the game’s soundtrack are specially crafted songs by the fan-favorite band, Poets of the Fall, whose longstanding collaboration with Remedy can be traced back to the days of Max Payne 2.
In this video, composer Petri Alanko steps into the spotlight, providing further insight into his creative process and the significance of drawing inspiration from a wide range of influences, including the use of unconventional instruments. Petri’s contributions seamlessly complement the work of Remedy’s talented sound designers, all of whom collaborate closely with him to conjure the ultimate soundscape of fear.
