With 11-11: Memories Retold release just right around the corner on 9th November on PC, Xbox One, PS4 fans can now purchase their very own score from the upcoming title from Aardman Studios and DigixArt Studio.
The soundtrack is composed by Olivier Derivière who you may know from other titles like Vampyr, Remember Me, and Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag – Freedom Cry. Olivier has been nominated for a BAFTA as well as being recognized by Billboard, Classic FM and The New York Times, so you can be certain you’ll be in for some quality music to your ears.
For this score, Olivier Derivière partnered up with Grammy-winning score engineer John Kurlander to form the ultimate team-dream as they recorded the soundtrack, together with performances by The Philharmonia Orchestra, at the infamous Abbey Road. With its three acts, the musical score plays upon the structure of ballet and leitmotivs to realize the poetry of life in even the darkest of times.
Olivier Derivière has expressed in a press statement that –
“11-11 : Memories Retold was a unique opportunity for me to explore my classical background and create a soundtrack that flows like a ballet. The living paintings created by Aardman allowed me to write Impressionistic music influenced by the greatest French composers of the early 20th Century such as Gabriel Faure, Claude Debussy, and Maurice Ravel.”
“As the story takes place during World War I, it was a real honor to compose meaningful and deeply respectful lyrics that reflect the pacifism of the subject matter. I am very grateful for my collaboration with the teams at Aardman and Digixart that inspired me to make the music as if it was another character in the game, telling us the story on its own.”
11-11: Memories Retold will release for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 9th. 11-11: Memories Retold original soundtrack is available to purchase digitally from Bandcamp
