New York, NY (July 1, 2009)--Sumthing Else Music Works, Inc. has released Empire: Total War, the music soundtrack from the Total War PC gaming franchise.
Empire: Total War - The Soundtrack, from the latest installment of The Creative Assembly's multi award-winning franchise, is being made available through Sumthing Else's licensing relationship with video game developer and publisher SEGA. It will be released on June 30th to retail outlets through Sumthing Else Music Works, and will be available for digital download on Sumthing Digital and iTunes.
Sumthing Else Music Works has become involved in licensing and distributing video game soundtracks since its creation in the late 1990s by songwriter, musician and record producer, Nile Rodgers.
Empire: Total War - The Soundtrack features the orchestral score composed by Richard Beddow (Viking: Battle For Asgard), Richard Birdsall, Walter Nair, Simon Ravn and performed by The Slovak National Symphony Orchestra at the Slovak Radio Concert Hall in Bratislava. The score was orchestrated and conducted by Nic Raine (Viking: Battle For Asgard).
Lead composer Richard Beddow produced the soundtrack. "Undertaking the challenge of the music production for Empire: Total War was no simple task," said Beddow. "The game needed music to convey its size and breadth, covering the various countries at war, delicately accompanying campaign gameplay and underpinning the various cinematics and events in the game."
Empire: Total War is set in the 18th century, a turbulent era that is the most requested by Total War's loyal fan base and a period filled with global conflict, revolutionary fervor and technological advances.
