Episode #214: The Flight

December 4, 2014 · 37:04

Composers Joe Henson and Alexis Smith form a composing duo called The Flight. They’ve been working together on music for more than 20 years, and have three games under their belt in addition to multiple other media projects. They’re getting a lot of attention for their recent score to Alien: Isolation, a game based off of the 1979 film Alien. Composer Jerry Goldsmith wrote the score for that film, and Joe and Alexis had the opportunity to use themes from Goldsmith’s iconic score in their own music for Alien: Isolation. Emily talks with Joe and Alexis about Alien: Isolation, their music for the multiplayer aspect of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag​, and humility on the new episode of Top Score.
