Ubisoft videogame publishers announced that in addition to collaborating with award-winning composer Jack Wall on the Myst® IV Revelation soundtrack, Peter Gabriel also lends his voice to the game. Myst IV Revelation, PC/Mac hybrid DVD-Rom, launches tomorrow, September 28, for $39.99.
While researching, playing the game hands-on and working on the soundtrack, Peter Gabriel became inspired by the world of Serenia, one of the Ages/worlds in the game.
“When Myst came out, I thought it succeeded well in creating a feeling of other worlds in which mystery and imagination were the compelling elements, instead of the usual action-packed ‘shoot ’em-ups,’” said Gabriel. “I think there is some similarity with the way I try and create worlds of sound. I very much enjoyed working on Myst IV Revelation.”
Composer Jack Wall says: “It was such a privilege and pleasure to work with Peter Gabriel. His voice contribution is wonderful and the song he wrote and performed is a perfect fit to the soundtrack. The Warsaw Village Band, the Slovak Radio Orchestra and the Los Angeles Choir helped to create a soundtrack as compelling as the visuals and game play. The developers at Ubisoft were totally passionate about making this game the best in the series and the music, and audio teams supported me all the way.”
