The Scoring Stage at Skywalker Sound in Marin County, Calif., participated in four Game Audio Network Guild Awards at a ceremony held on March 8th, 2012 in San Francisco. Both the scores for LucasArts’ Star Wars: The Old Republic Collector’s Edition Soundtrack, and Microsoft’s Kinect Disneyland Adventures, were primarily recorded and mixed at Skywalker by Leslie Ann Jones.
Star Wars won G.A.N.G. Awards for Best Soundtrack Album and Best Original Instrumental. Kinect Disneyland Adventures won for Best Use of Licensed Music and Best Interactive Score. The score for Kinect was produced by Paul Lipson and Pyramind Studios.
“LucasArts was thrilled to record at Skywalker Sound for the score to Star Wars: The Old Republic,” says Jesse Harlin, Music Supervisor. “We’re extremely lucky to have a world-class facility and world-class musicians right in our own backyard.”
“When the call comes in for a live, full orchestral session, Pyramind’s first call is Skywalker Sound,” says Pyramind CEO Gregory J. Gordon. “The staff there is second to none, and combined with amazing musicians and the best sounding room, the results are award winning and world class.
