Petri Alanko and John Kaefer recently spoke to Gamespot about composing the score for Remedy's upcoming game, Quantum Break. Petri Alanko worked on the game's soundtrack with John Kaefer focusing on the TV show aspect.
The interviews are really interesting and very detailed! In one question, Gamespot asks Alanko about the type of score he wrote; as it's an action game that usually means a loud and dramatic set to accompany it. In fact the opposite is true for Jack's new adventure. Alanko's answer is unexpected but it makes a lot of sense and gets you thinking. His approach feels more logical, as it's a Remedy title and is more story-focused, his approach focuses on emotions rather than the action.
