  On this week’s episode of GAMEPLAY, we’ll explore three different soundtracks scored by composer Jessica Curry: one of today’s great game music storytellers.

 

No matter the setting or story of a particular game, she is able to adapt her style while maintaining her unique, gorgeously lyrical voice.

 

We’ll look for the secrets held by an island in the Scottish Hebrides, go on a walk through the beautiful but mysteriously empty English countryside, and experience the life cycle of a planet.

You can stream the full episode below, along with a behind-the-scenes video on the making of So Let Us Melt.

Generous support for the music heard on this program comes from the Robert T. and Ruth Haidt Hughes Memorial Acquisitions Fund. Special thanks to Michael Culler for engineering assistance.  Keith Brown is GAMEPLAY’s host and executive producer.
