Prestigious EMMY Award-Winning composer Inon Zur signed once again an immersive Original Soundtrack for the upcoming new Syberia game
Paris, December 10th, 2021 – In order to allow fans to wait until the release of Syberia: The World Before next year, Microids is pleased to unveil today an exclusive behind-the-scenes video of the title’s musical creation as well as to announce the availability of the digital soundtrack album, published by Decca Records US part of Universal Music Group.
Recorded in the Hungarian capital in the presence of the talented Budapest Film Symphony Orchestra, and featuring an interview with renowned composer Inon Zur, who has been involved in the creation process of the saga’s main themes since Syberia 2. The soundtrack features complex and melodic orchestral music, which will transport its listeners to an inspired world through each score.
Inon Zur (EMMY Award Winner and three-time BAFTA Nominee), one of the most talented composers in the industry, behind the works of Starfield, The Elder Scrolls, Dragon Age, Prince of Persia and Everquest, once again, offered to Syberia’s and all adventure-game fans a unique on-size score, bringing classical music in video games to another level.
“I’m absolutely thrilled and proud to come back to the magical and evocative world of Syberia for the third time. It is very personal to me since the story touches, in many places, the history of my own family. The amazing Benoît Sokal and the Microids team crafted a masterfully written story which I was so taken by, and the music came out from my deepest emotions. I really hope that my music will emotionally move the players as much as I felt when I was introduced to Syberia: The World Before.”
