Disney’s Fantasia: Music Evolved Soundtrack Being Recorded At The Beatles' Abbey Road Studio By Dragon Age Composer
Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age 2 composer Inon Zur will be recording the orchestral soundtrack to Fantasia: Music Evolved, the interactive sequel to Disney classics Fantasia and Fantasia 2000.
As you may remember from general pop culture, even if you've never seen Walt Disney's (financially) disastrous 1940 attempt at making a classical-music based anthology series called Fantasia, Mickey Mouse at one point dressed up like a sorcerer's apprentice in a red robe and blue hat, generally causing mischief and mayhem cuz he was too lazy to mop the floor.
Mickey's master (canonically named Yen Sid) is apparently none too careful about magic either, as in the new rhythm game from Harmonix (Rock Band), he tasks his apprentice with bringing order to new worlds he has created. It is up to the player to move rhythmically to bring life to initially desolate worlds.
Besides featuring music from pop music acts like Queen, Nicki Minaj and Elton John, the game also has an orchestral score featuring classical music such as Bach's Toccata En Fugue In D Minor and original compositions by Inon Zur (recorded at the Beatles' Abbey Road Studio!). These latter two will now be bundled on a soundtrack release.
Disney's Fantasia: Music Evolved original soundtrack will be available for streaming, digital download and physical CD on October 21. A Director's Cut special edition soundtrack will be available from SumThing. The game itself will drop on the same date for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
