Inon Zur's soundtrack for 'Syberia: The World Before' is passionate and personal

Syberia The World Before Key Art

Syberia: The World Before continues the compelling story of the adventurous Kate Walker, and, with a double story-line, introduces us to a gifted young pianist Dana Roze, whom me meet in 1937 just as a darkness begins to spread over an idyllic European city. Composer Inon Zur welcomed the chance to reconnect with Kate Walker after scoring two previous Syberia Games, while giving a musical personality to the young Dana Roze. Inon worked with Grammy-nominated pianist Emily Bear, who was thrilled to work on her first video game soundtrack.
Dana's story, beginning in 1937, gave Inon a chance to go back to his own family's experiences in Europe as the Nazis rose to power, which made the music very personal for him.

Syberia: The World Before releases next year, but Inon's passionate soundtrack is available now.
