Austin Wintory’s Journey soundtrack nominated for a Grammy

"The nominees for the 55th Grammy awards are now up, with the choices for "Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media" including the likes of The Adventures Of Tintin, The Dark Knight Rises, and..Journey?!

That's right, Austin Wintory's marvelous work on the emotionally captivating PS3 exclusive Journey got a Grammy nomination. Videogame music at the Grammy's is a fairly recent phenomenon, with Christopher Tin's "Baba Yetu" from Civilization 4 winning a Grammy back in 2011.

I'd love to see Journey trounce its (admittedly) intimidating competition, which includes John Williams' The Adventures Of Tintin - The Secret of the Unicorn, Hans Zimmer's The Dark Knight Rises, Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross' The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Ludovic Bource's The Artist, and Howard Shore's Hugo.

Say what you want about the Grammy's (GWAR's Oderus Urungus having a few choice words about them that I agree with), but seeing a videogame composer being recognized in a mainstream award ceremony like this is a momentous occasion."

- Patrick Kulikowski (Austin Wintory, Industry, Journey, Journey Collector's Edition, PS3)

I know. I'm not surprised though. Everything from the game made a statement in the industry. Would be amazing if it does win.

This is a well deserved nomination, the musical score in Journey is so emotionally enveloping.

Amazing soundtrack. I'd still give my GOTY to Gravity Rush, however.
Hicken  +   652d ago
For me, it's the other way around. Journey is first, and Gravity Rush is a close second. Really hoping to see Kat return for a sequel.

It really is an incredible score, each track gives the emotion of each scene amazingly well.
I could never say enough good things about the game but its soundtrack definitely was a big part of the experience.
