To celebrate, today I wanted to highlight a song on the soundtrack that we especially loved, because it was originally written by one of our own Sound Designers, Lovisa Bergdahl. “In the Flood” wasn’t originally written for a sequel, but Lovisa’s live demo convinced us it would open the game perfectly! She then teamed up with one of our composers, Oleksa Lozowchuk, to co-produce the track that now makes up the opening scene as Aloy gallops West (performed by Ariana Gillis) to act). The original version of Lovisa can be enjoyed after completing the game, in the end credits.
We are extremely honored and excited to release our first music video for “In the Flood (Lovisa’s Edition)”! Watch as Lovisa introduces the song with beautiful shots of Aloy and the world of Horizon:
Go to the official Guerrilla Twitch channel at 7 a.m. PT / 4 p.m. CEST, where Lovisa will join our community group with Music Supervisor Lucas van Tol to talk about the soundtrack, the music video creation process, and answer any questions. Any questions you have about creating the iconic tunes that accompany Aloy’s journey into the Forbidden West! **
