Swedish musician Daniel OlsÃ©n has composed the soundtrack to Southend Interactive's Xbox 360 puzzle game ilomilo and is currently at work on the score to Simogo Games' Device 6. The composer recently spoke at the Tokyo Indie Underground at 8bit Cafe, a talk event coinciding with the Tokyo Game Show, streaming online and independently funded through Kickstarter. In his presentation the musician describes iterating on a theme for Simogo's horror app Year Walk through a series of discussions with designer Simon Flesser.
Year Walk's story riffs on Swedish folktales, whose myths and creatures are detailed in the free online Year Walk Companion. A live performance of one piece from the game and the full presentation can be viewed in the above embedded player, combining high definition footage and Ustream archives.
Listen to the soundtrack streaming in full on Bandcamp and read the online companion, courtesy of Daniel OlsÃ©n and Simogo Games.
