Sound Byte: Meet the Composer - Nitin Sawhney

Liked the music to Enslaved: Odyssey to the West? We introduce you to composer Nitin Sawhney.

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is a beautiful action adventure game set in a future where war has ravaged the planet. The visuals are eye-catching, and the subtle audio does an excellent job of complementing what you see onscreen. For more details on the game, and our review, please read here. Thanks to our GameSpot UK team and our video crew here, we were able to get an interview with composer Nitin Sawhney, who also worked on the soundtrack to Heavenly Sword.

I'm sure Enslaved will have an excellent score, since Heavenly Sword had an excellent score; and, it's the same composer.

Really love this blog. It's so great to take time to appreciate these composers and their music. To have someone like Nitin making music for games sets such a high standard for the medium. Can't wait to play Enslaved.
