Tomb Raider: Original Soundtrack sees physical retail release
The critically acclaimed soundtrack to Tomb Raider, composed by Jason Graves, launches at retail today, according to Electronic Theatre. The physical Audio CD of the Tomb Raider: Original Soundtrack has been available to order since launch, March 5th, 2013, from major retailer Amazon.com. However, this marks the first Tomb Raider video game soundtrack album to be stocked on location in music stores.
This could be attributed to the re-release of a technically upgraded Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition later this month, strong digital sales of Graves' Tomb Raider: Original Soundtrack over the last year, or both. Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition launches January 28th, 2014, on next gen systems: Xbox One & PS4.

I believe the first five Tomb Raider games were played by their composers through the use of synthesizers. But, the Nashville Music Scoring Orchestra played the music for "Rise of the Tomb Raider." And, "Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness" was played by the London Symphony Orchestra. Here is my question: What are the orchestras of the other Tomb Raider games? Has the London Symphony played scores for any other Tomb Raider games? Are some of the orchestras that play the music for these games made up of contract or temporary-employment musicians, and, if so, which games are those? I'd be interested in a list of the games and their orchestras. For instance, the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot only says "Jason Graves" as the credit for the music, but it sounds like an entire orchestra playing that music, so which orchestra is it?ReplyDelete
