LT Soundtrack

So we have had a few threads on LT's music, and we don't nearly have enough polls in comparison to the number of threads in the other subforums. :roll: Therefore, I do believe it is time for the official Limit Theory Soundtrack Poll! Yay!

Now with Cornflakes' Universal Selectability Protocol tm, which enables everyone to provide their multifaceted opinions without being limited by how many things they can select, simply by letting the number of options be equal to the number of choices you can make. Progress! :lol:

The results of logic, of natural progression? Boring! An expected result? Dull! An obvious next step? Pfui! Where is the fun in that? A dream may soothe, but our nightmares make us run!

And I totally agree with you, Cornflakes, but in the case of Limit Theory I'd prefer something similar to Freelancer.... but better. :mrgreen:

I'm reasonably sure that Francois delivered what Josh wanted so I kinda think I will be more than happy with the LT vanilla OST. ;) :D

Orchestral yes. Francois, also yes. :thumbup: And finally, I hope Josh's stuff gets included too.

Actually, in contrast to my usual opinion on such things, I don't want orchestral music in LT. Programmatic orchestral music is hard to do well or memorably, especially in space opera games. The only person, in my very strong opinion, who could pull it off is Jeremy Soule, short of paying the big bucks to get some Zimmermusik (which worked well in Interstellar, but for an arguably different narrative paradigm). Otherwise the soundtrack becomes indistinctly 'epic' and no one cares after a while.

The other routes are minimalism (McCann, from the Moon soundtrack) or just good old, semi-ambient electronic music. Francois has my 100% vote and I don't think one can do better.

Out of curiosity, Victor, could you briefly describe Freelancer's soundtrack?

That neatly summarizes my own wishlist.

Here you go.

Haven't heard this in about 10 years :| I don't think it sounds much like Guild Wars.... But it's good.

Thanks for that, HowSerendipitous. :thumbup: I hadn't realised the full album was available on YouTube (I've got the CD).

The truth is I'm a big fan of Andrew Sega (Necros) and his work. The soundtracks to the two Crusader games are still awesome after all these years. :D

While LT's composer François Jolin doesn't have any parts of the LT soundtrack on his Soundcloud page, I really would recommend having a listen to Lumiere.

:D Yes, I'm looking forward to listening to the soundtrack in full, Grumblesaur. Mr Jolin does compose some exceedingly fine music.

Edit: I think most of the regulars here are aware of the esteem in which I hold the LT compositions of Mr Parnell. :thumbup:

I understand the reasons for keeping the OST under wraps, Cornflakes, which makes it hard for us to appreciate what François will be contributing to the project. :angel:
