Marcin Przybylowicz had no idea when he started writing the music for The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt that he'd be creating one of the most beloved soundtracks of all time! He collaborated with Mikolai Stroinski and brought in the folk band Percival to add what Marcin describes as the "secret ingredient" to the music that captures the world of The Witcher. We also talked about Marcin's new project, Seven: The Days Long Gone.

Marcin has spent seven years writing music for The Witcher and all its expansions. For his latest project,  music for the game Seven: The Days Long Gone, he also created some homemade rustic instruments to create a really rustic sound.
