Music Respawn! Mike Raznick Soars AWAY


Mike Raznick says writing the music for AWAY: The Survival Adventure VR game in development by the studio Breaking Walls gave him the chance to combine his love of writing music for nature documentaries and games. He was hooked the moment he put on the headset and jumped off the cliff as a soaring bird!

Mike says one of the challenges in writing the music for AWAY was to have it support, but not overpower, the player's virtual reality experience.


Musical talent runs in Mike's family: he's related to the great violin virtuoso Jascha Heifetz, and, although he never had the opportunity to meet him, feels sure Heifetz would approve of his career choice.
