‘Control’ From Remedy Entertainment Released Today

27th August 2019

Air-Edel composer Martin Stig Andersen wrote the original music for ‘Control’ with Petri Alanko. From Remedy Entertainment, ‘Control’ is released today and available on Xbox One, PlayStation® 4, and PC.

After a secretive agency in New York is invaded by an otherworldly threat, you become the new Director struggling to regain Control. This supernatural third-person action-adventure game will challenge you to master a combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts, and reactive environments while fighting through a deep and unpredictable world.

“Since Control is inspired by the literary genre “new weird”, and deals with supernatural themes, I’ve mainly been exploring sounds that appear unusual in nature but remains organic and somewhat real. Rather than using synthesis I’ve recorded and processed instruments such as the Daxophone, home-build string and spring instruments, a bowed plate reverb etc. Having sounds appear both familiar and unfamiliar at the same time creates an unsettling atmosphere. The score is highly interactive, and is organised by the game second by second, corresponding to the players behaviour.” – Martin Stig Andersen
