Disney Interactive and Harmonix today announced that longtime industry composer Inon Zur is creating original music for the upcoming Xbox game Fantasia: Music Evolved.
He composed, conducted, and produced many of the orchestral themes for Fantasia: Music Evolved and collaborated with Disney and Harmonix on new versions of classic symphonies from Mussorgsky and Vivaldi.
Zur also arranged and produced the orchestral version of Queen's famous "Bohemian Rhapsody" for Fantasia: Music Evolved. The music was recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra and The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields at Abbey Road.
Fantasia: Music Evolved, based on 1940 film Fantasia, was announced in June for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Players use the Kinect motion control technology to manipulate the flow of music. Gamers can change the mix of songs in real time, mashing up the original recording and remixed versions, or even adding layers of music via "magical manipulators."
In all, Fantasia: Music Evolved features more than 30 tracks, which include two remixes in addition to the original recordings. The current announced artist and song list is below.
Antonio Vivaldi - "Four Seasons: Winter: 1st Movement"
AVICII - "Levels"
Bruno Mars - "Locked Out of Heaven"
Fun - "Some Nights"
Kimbra - "Settle Down"
Queen - "Bohemian Rhapsody"
Fantasia: Music Evolved launches for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2014.
