Cliff Martinez Collaborates on Far Cry 4 OST
Cliff Martinez is a name some people may recognise. He was in the internationally renowned Red Hot Chili Peppers, as well as other music credits like Drive, The Fifth Element and The Lincoln Lawyer.
Cliff has worked with Ubisoft Music Designer Jerome Angelot, Music Supervisor Simon Landry, and Audio Director Tony Gronick to bring Far Cry 4 alive through the power of music.
“Bringing Cliff on board was a no-brainer. Collaborating with him was a dream. He has the remarkable ability to portray compelling emotions and elevate the mundane into extraordinary with his musical talent,” said Tony Gronick, Audio Director for Far Cry 4, Ubisoft. “Cliff delivered everything I hoped for. I’m so proud of the music in Far Cry 4 and am thankful for the opportunity to work with him.”
“It was an honor to be asked to write the music for the Far Cry 4 game as my first full-length video game soundtrack,” said Cliff Martinez. “It was exciting for me to be asked to take my usual minimalistic cinematic approach to the immersive game world. Any game where you can ride on a rampaging elephant is a project you can’t turn down!”
The Original Game Soundtrack Digital Edition is was released on November 4th. A Limited Edition 2 CD OST is scheduled for release on December 2nd and 9th for the US and EU respectively. For purists, a 3 LP vinyl edition is due in January 2015.
