HoMM V: The Music
8:25 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Ubisoft's Heroes of Might and Magic V website is offering a new interview with composer Rob King. King has been involved with the series since the first game and the interview explores his insights into the full two hours of music which will accompany the new game. HoMM V is the latest in the popular turn based strategy series.

How does your collaboration with Paul Romero go? What other musicians did you collaborate with?

We usually just sit around reading gossip magazines like US weekly and Enquirer discussing music direction while reading the misfortunes of celebrities. Seriously... In some cases Paul comes to the table with some brilliant ideas and we work out the arrangements or I might have an arrangement of drums completely laid out with melodic Ideas that we work from. We have two workstations here at the studio and usually we are both doing something on the song then go back and forth on both rigs. There really isnít any certain way of doing anything, just get it done fast ya know? When we use other musicians, the arrangement is usually done and tracked in advance and we replace the sampled parts with the appropriate musician. On the main theme we actually just did a choral arrangement to a click/piano track, recorded it at a studio and brought it back in our studio and wrote the music around the vocals. Pretty tricky but I actually enjoyed the results. It lets you think a bit differently about the musical parts.

In addition to the interview the website offers downloadable versions of some of the game's songs. To listen and read click on the link below.
