This dev diary goes into details about the creative process of the musical theme and the original soundtrack of the narrative game Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo, freely inspired by Hitchcock’s masterpiece. 

For his sixth musical work (Runaway (2003) The Next Big Thing (2011), Yesterday (2012), Yesterday Origins (2016) and more recently Blacksad: Under the Skin in 2019), the composer Juan Miguel Martin surrounded himself with twelve talented musicians in order to capture the style of Hitchcock’ fetish composer Bernard Herrmann.   

Synopsis :

Ed Miller, a writer, came out unscathed from his car crash down into Brody Canyon, California.
Even though no one was found inside the car wreckage, Ed insists that he was traveling with his wife and daughter. Traumatized by the event, he begins to suffer from severe vertigo. As he starts therapy, he will try to uncover what really happened on that tragic day.
