These musical layers are designed using video game scoring techniques to enable adaptive adjustments to react to the gameplay. This track is one of hundreds of possible variations, in which the 5 layers and 16-second loops are faded in and out.
Joseph understands that what gives music ‘life’ is nothing musical at all. His scores do not accompany a story, they come from the story. Joseph is adept at using any musical style to communicate a precise balance and progression of emotions, and works closely with filmmakers to ensure that the music augments the viewers’ immersion in the existing artistry.
