New World: Rise of the Angry Earth

Exciting news! The much-anticipated release of “New World: Rise of the Angry Earth” is finally here, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share it with you all!

I had the incredible privilege of contributing music to this epic expansion for Amazon Games’ phenomenal MMORPG, New World. The score is now available for your listening pleasure on all major streaming platforms and YouTube. Check it out here:

I want to extend my deepest gratitude to Austin DeVries for his visionary approach to the music, which brought the awe-inspiring creatures of New Eden to life in such a breathtaking way. And a huge thank you to Jean-Edouard Miclot and the entire leadership team at Amazon Games for entrusting me with this remarkable project.

Of course, none of this would have been possible without the exceptional talents of the musicians who lent their expertise to the score:

  • Leah Zeger – Violin & Viola
  • Cameron Stone – Cello
  • Laura Intravia – Vocals
  • Kristin Naigus – Woodwinds
  • Sam R Choon – Trumpet
  • Noah Gladstone – Musician Consultant
  • Jordan Seigel & Tyler Rydosz – Orchestration
  • Adam Michalak – Mixing

I also want to give a special shoutout to my agent, the amazing Sabrina Hutchinson of Defiant Talent, for her unwavering support, guidance, and friendship throughout this journey.

This project holds a unique place in my heart as it evolved into a distinct sonic identity with each diverse cue, a rarity in itself. It’s a testament to the vast and immersive world we aimed to capture.

Composing for the exotic and uncharted realms of New Eden was an absolute delight. Drawing inspiration from my travels to distant lands like Vietnam, Cambodia, and Hawaii, I sought to evoke the essence of the alien flora that permeates this stunning landscape.

But what truly made this endeavor unforgettable were the complex, multifaceted characters that inhabit these lands – mythical creatures and fallen half-gods, each with their own layers of depth. I delved deep into the realm of emotions, crafting themes that embodied their motivations, their pain, and, most importantly, their uniqueness.

Thank you for joining me on this incredible musical journey through New World: Rise of the Angry Earth.
