Level 64: Cris Velasco (Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Freakish)

Composer Cris Velasco  is a huge fan of horror, whether he’s curating exhibits of Clive Barker’s art , or writing scores to games like Resident Evil 7: Biohazard .

The score for RE7 is unusual; it was constructed using a compositional technique called musique concrète which involves taking recorded sounds and constructing music from it. One of the most famous examples is Poème électronique , by French composer Edgar Varèse (although the technique was invented by another Frenchman named Pierre Shaeffer).

Cris talks about recording sounds to use in the music and constructing it into the score. We also chat about his music for Hulu’s Freakish .
