Mass Effect Original Soundtrack: Looking Back.

Sumthing.com writes:
There’s something amazing and special about the Mass Effect soundtrack.
My favorite quote about it comes from Casey Hudson himself: “It would need the thundering power and emotional range of a live orchestra. At the same time, that classic sound would be woven into themes reminiscent of 80s electronica, with synthetic instruments providing complex layers and an ambient, futuristic atmosphere.”
Jack Wall, Sam Hulick, Richard Jacques and David Kates each contributed in varying degrees to the Mass Effect score, and they did a great job maintaining a tone and creating that sound Casey desired.
Additionally, the simplicity and clarity of the Mass Effect soundtrack contribute heavily to its success.
The menu music is calming and wonderful, and sets a tone for what’s to come musically through the game. A simple, single synth plays a song-like melody over a drone with some wind. Awesome. (BioWare, Casey Hudson, David Kates, Industry, Jack Wall, Richard Jacques, Sam Hulick)
