Inon Zur's 'Outriders' Soundtrack Spotlights The Human Drama

Top Dollar PR

Outriders, created by the studio People Can Fly, tells the story of an elite force of explorers sent as support to investigate a planet that's been designated as a new home for humans. But all isn't as it first appears on the planet, and its tranquility rapidly turns deadly for the Outriders. Inon Zur's stunning soundtrack uses a massive orchestra, synths, and some beautiful solo instruments to keep the focus on the human drama.

Inon's soundtrack for Dragon Age is what got the attention of the team at People Can Fly. While they weren't going for that exact sound, they loved Inon's use of the orchestra. After many months of discussions, Inon and the team hit the right sound, and Inon was able to record  with a massive orchestra in Budapest.


Inon says working on this score was a huge stretch artistically, and led him to experiment with a wide variety of synths, samples, and ways of modifying the accoustic instruments; skills he'll be able to put to good use on future projects.
