When you think Cyberpunk 2077 what kind of music comes to mind? Usually synthwave, retrowave, or anything dealing with electronic music. The original Blade Runner centered its themes around a synthesized noir sound, thanks to Vangelis. It’s a completely different audible palette compared to another cyberpunk score like Akira or Ghost in the Shell, both of which sported spiritual/gamelan sounds.
According to Cyberpunk 2077′s trailer, Archive song “Bullets” sounds nothing like the aforementioned OSTs. Well, according to IMDb, two people associated to Guns N’ Roses, Brain Mantia and Melissa Reese, are working on Cyberpunk 2077’s OST. Mantia noted to audified.com back on May 27th, 2017 that…
“I’m also working on the soundtrack for the Cyberpunk 2077 video game… This project in particular has been a little challenging because the developers are looking for music that has never been heard before if that makes any sense… They are looking for music that would be made in the year 2077… I’m into it because I really love “white noise” and I figure that’s where music is gonna be in 60 years from now (lol)… Basically every frequency within the range of human hearing (20 hertz to 20 kHz)… Anyways, i’m really diggin’ the experimentation on this project!!!”
Shahkulu: Hey there, really looking forward to seeing you in Glasgow, Scotland on Nov. 18th. Have you played there before and was it a good crowd? Also wondering if there’s any update on your possible involvement with the Cyberpunk 2077 soundtrack? (sorry if this is a duplicate ask.fm is being weird)
Perturbator: Hey there, hell yeah Glasgow has one of the best crowds i’ve ever seen, i’ll see you there ! Hope you’ll like it.I actually can’t say anything about Cyberpunk 2077, it’s all secret information 😉
The last piece of rumored information veers away from that of music and more toward that of E3 2018. It’s worth noting that you should really take this next piece of info with a grain of salt, which derives from publication site gry-online.pl.
The site makes mention that CD Projekt Red will heavily promote Cyberpunk 2077 around and during that of said game event, and will supposedly show a playable demo behind closed doors to select people.
With that all said, what kind of music would you like Cyberpunk 2077 to feature given that the developers are looking for music that has never been heard before?
