Deus Ex 3: Human Revolution features cybernoir score by Michael McCann
The Deus Ex franchise has a strong standard of music score. DX1 is frankly iconic- are you imagining the big fanfare from the menu screen right now, too? DX2 had the musical stylings of Kidneytheives, whose albums I totally reccomend. Dx3 will have the support of Michael McCann, a master of atmospheric scores.
Award-winning composer and sound designer Michael McCann aka Behavior (ReGenesis, Splinter Cell: Double Agent), best known for his ambient cinematic scores and organic soundscapes, is creating the original musical score for DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION™ currently in development at Eidos-Montréal. The music captures the unique visual style of DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION and thematically supports the blend of action, role-playing and adventure genres featured in the game. To immerse players in the dark and beautifully visualized world of DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION, the score fuses elements of cybernoir, futuristic renaissance and electrosymphonic ambience.
“We are thrilled to have Michael McCann creating the original music score for DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION,” said Steve Szczepkowski, audio director for DEUS EX at Eidos-Montréal. “His cinematic musical expression and immersive scoring sensibility brings emotional depth to the unique experience of DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION. I’m a big fan of Mike’s music and working with him has been a complete pleasure.”
A critically acclaimed music composer and sound designer for film, television and interactive media, Michael McCann’s credits include the title music for the sci-tech drama series ReGenesis, sound design and music editing for the cult film It’s All Gone Pete Tong and the original score for Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Double Agent which garnered him a Best Original Score Award from IGN.com and nomination from the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences for Outstanding Achievement in Original Music Composition.
