Austin Wintory's music for DeFormers, from Ready at Dawn Studios, is a kaleidoscope of iconic sounds of Spaghetti Westerns and circus bands. He said his only direction from the studio was to make it fun, and he did!

Austin featured accordion virtuoso, Ksenija Sidorova, and built the music around her incredible ability to get to the heart of the music. In fact, he says she totally made him rethink the kind of playing that was possible on an accordion.
