In early 2022 the video game studio Endflame commissioned me the music and sound design of the official trailer of their new project, Ikai, a horror adventure set in Middle Ages Japan. In this case, the most prominent sound elements are effects and ambiences, set out in dozens of layers in order to create the right horror and tension atmosphere for the story. As for the music part, it’s very subtle and based on a traditional Japanese tune that the main character hums in some moment of the action, and which I found quite suitable to use as leit motiv. Apart from music composition and sound design, I took care of mixing and mastering as well.
Ikai was launched on March 31th, 2022. Here you have the trailer:
