Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall has shot to the top of the UK games chart, claiming the title of fastest-selling game of the year so far.
The score to Titanfall was composed by Stephen Barton and recorded by Abbey Road’s Jonathan Allen in Studio One and Studio Two.
Within the game players must choose between two factions; this was reflected in the recording process itself, with music for the opposing teams recorded in separate studios to help create different ‘sound worlds’.
As Stephen explains, “Studio One lent its warmth, richness and larger-than-life sound to the music for the Interstellar Mining Corporation, and the unmistakable clarity and depth of Studio Two brings a grittier, organic texture to the Militia sound.
“I can't think of anywhere better than Abbey Road, arguably the home of recorded music, to record London's finest musicians for the score to an epic futuristic battlefield.”
