Peter Gabriel Collaborates with Award-Winning Composer Jack Wall to Create Immersive Experience and Lends His Voice to the Game
September 21, 2004 - Ubisoft, one of the world's largest videogame publishers, today announced that in addition to collaborating with award-winning composer Jack Wall on the Myst® IV Revelation soundtrack, Peter Gabriel also lends his voice to the game - Myst IV Revelation, PC/Mac hybrid DVD-Rom, launches in Europe on 1st October 2004 at the manufacturer's suggest retail price of £34.99
While researching, playing the game hands-on, and working on the soundtrack, Peter Gabriel became inspired by the "zen" world of Serenia - one of the picturesque Ages in the game. He was enchanted by the monks and was honored to be asked to do the voiceover for the gateway to Serenia.
"When Myst came out I thought it succeeded well in creating a feeling of other worlds in which mystery and imagination were the compelling elements instead of the usual action-packed 'shoot 'em ups'," said Peter Gabriel, world-renowned recording artist. "I think there is some similarity with the way I try and create worlds of sound. I very much enjoyed working on Myst IV Revelation."
Jack Wall composed an immersive and ambient soundtrack luring players into the depths of the Myst world. Myst IV Revelation's music and sound capture a universal and ethereal feeling and tone, which complements the innovative artistic landscapes.
"It was such a privilege and pleasure to work with Peter Gabriel. His voice contribution is wonderful and the song he wrote and performed is a perfect fit to the soundtrack. The Warsaw Village Band, the Slovak Radio Orchestra and the Los Angeles Choir helped to create a soundtrack as compelling as the visuals and gameplay," said Jack Wall, composer for Myst IV Revelation. "The developers at Ubisoft were totally passionate about making this game the best in the series and the music, and audio teams supported me all the way."
