THE CONDUIT CONTINUES TO HIT HIGH NOTES High Voltage Software announces the composer of music for The Conduit
High Voltage Software, Inc., one of the world's largest independent developers, today officially announced that their stunning first-person action shooter, The Conduit, has been scored by famed composer Diego Stocco.
Diego’s music and music sound design tracks, as part of the music library Epic Score, have been licensed for the marketing campaign for titles like Transformers, Resident Evil: Extinction, Awake, Jumper and the videogames Justice League Heroes, and Soulcalibur IV. Diego is also officially credited for the movies “Crank”, “Into the Blue” and the videogame “Far Cry Instincts”. His commercial credits include Nokia, Samsung, Panasonic, BMW and General Motors.
Working with Diego was such an enjoyment, said Michael Metz, Audio/Visual Director at High Voltage Software. When I heard the first track he made for The Conduit, I literally got the chills, it was exactly the mood and mix of sound design and music we were looking for.
The Conduit unveils incredible scenarios during the game, with a richness in terms of details and action that is very inspiring for a composer, said Stocco. I'm very excited to be part of The Conduit; it's the kind of project that makes me push the envelope in terms of sound creativity.
The Conduit won several awards following its appearance and demonstration at E3 2008. IGN.com gave it three awards, including Best Shooter Game of E3 2008 (Wii), Best Graphics Technology of E3 2008 (Wii), and Best Overall Wii Game of E3 2008. GameTrailers.com also gave it Best Wii Game of E3 2008.
The Conduit is scheduled for release in Q1 2009 exclusively for the Nintendo Wii.
