Exploring the Music of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
with composers Stephen Barton & Gordy Haab
plus scoring mixer Alan Meyerson

Gordy Haab, Stephen Barton, and Alan Meyerson share about the process of creating the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor soundtrack, with a special focus on the orchestration of the Star Wars franchise and the recording process involved in making it bring gameplay alive.

Taking apart several tentpole cues from the score, including Flight, Fields of Dusk, The Undercity, Canyon Explore, they will talk about the arranging and orchestration process, and how it ties in inextricably with recording; as well as discussing the unusual instrumentation in the score and scoring for everything from basset horns to water bottles, and everything that goes into crafting an orchestrally-focussed game score for a galaxy far, far, away.

Some stats about the score: 8.5 hours of music, 215 cues, 1,444 pages, 4 recording weeks at Abbey Road Studio One & Studio Two and Synchron Stage. Mixed by Alan Meyerson over the course of 8 months.

Download the complete 1,444-page full orchestral score for the Electronic Arts video game Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, courtesy of Stephen Barton, Gordy Haab, and their brilliant teams.
