Tomorrow Corporation have announced that the original soundtrack for Little Inferno is now available to download.
“Thank you to everyone who asked about the soundtrack to Little Inferno! It’s been fun and educational putting this together, and I’m happy to make the full soundtrack available here, below, for free,” writes composer Kyle Gabler.
“I’m a big fan of movie music from the 80′s and 90′s – like John Williams (1993 was his most amazing year), Danny Elfman’s 90′s heyday, Vangelis in the early 80′s – all with strong melodic themes and instantly identifiable orchestration. It was my goal with this soundtrack to write music that sounded like it could have been written in that time of VHS tapes and Stan Winston special effects, with clear, hummable melodies for each character and theme.”
“For the curious musicians reading this, I used a music program called Reaper to create all of the music – a lightweight DAW that’s less than 8MB, fast, and well designed. Weirdly, though, it has no form of classic staff notation, which was disorienting at first, until I got used to clicking notes into a piano roll.
“Almost all instruments are from my collection of old SoundFont2 files, converted to SFZ format with sfZed, and played back with the free SFZ sampler. I also used a few instruments from the ambitious open source Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra.”
