Required listening: SimCity, Tomb Raider, and BioShock Infinite composer Garry Schyman

VB - Music is just as important as visuals in setting the mood for BioShock games. Consider the moment in which you first look at Rapture: The orchestra swell that plays as you gaze on this Randian utopia-gone-wrong is powerful. It isn’t soothing — it fills us with dread and wonder. We wouldn’t have seen Rapture as such a broken paradise without the score helping to guide our emotions. (BioShock: Infinite, Culture, Garry Schyman, Tomb Raider)
