WHEELMAN VIDEO GAME SOUNDTRACK FEATURES ORIGINAL MUSIC BY AWARD-WINNING COMPOSER ROD ABERNETHY AND REDNOTE AUDIO
In-Game Soundtrack Immerses Players Into Barcelona Setting With Flamenco Orchestrations
Today composer Rod Abernethy and Rednote Audio www.rednoteaudio.com announce their involvement in the production of the authentic and edgy score for Wheelman™, the highly-anticipated driving game starring action-film megastar Vin Diesel as an expert driver for hire. Wheelman is developed by Midway Studios - Newcastle Ltd in close association with Vin Diesel's video game production company Tigon Studios and is being published worldwide by Ubisoft® and Midway.
Combining spectacular Hollywood-style stunts with a gripping storyline, Wheelman provides an adrenaline-fueled, cinematic thrill ride through the winding streets of Barcelona, Spain. To enhance the experience of over-the-top car chases in this stylish setting, Rod Abernethy and Rednote Audio created the majority of the game's intense hybrid score blending Flamenco guitars, modern electronica and hi-octane orchestral music into a heart-pounding audio experience that matches the gameplay and on-screen sequences.
"Working on Wheelman was a very rewarding experience," said composer Rod Abernethy. "My goal with Wheelman was to create a cinematic, hard-hitting score that has a traditional Spanish feel with a powerful, modern style."
Wheelman is expected to ship to retailers March 24, 2009, in North America and has a scheduled street date of March 27, 2009, in Europe. Wheelman will be available for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, and for Windows PC.
