Jason Graves - Lone Echo

Jason’s diverse musical background as a composer, drummer, keyboardist, guitarist and world percussionist allow him to expertly compose in many different genres of music. As a result, his game credits alone include more than one hundred titles, ranging from electronic and rock to full symphonic scores. He performs world percussion, drums and guitar on many of his own tracks and has conducted and recorded his live orchestral scores at Abbey Road Studios, Air Studios London, Capitol Records, FOX, Paramount Pictures and Skywalker Sound. One of JASON GRAVES’ most recent project has been for the VR video game, LONE ECHO.

Lone Echo is a virtual reality adventure game developed by Ready At Dawn, and published by Oculus Studios. Set aboard a space station orbiting Saturn, it allows players to move in zero-gravity by grabbing and pushing off of the environment. In addition to the narrative single-player game, the title includes a team-based multiplayer sports mode called Echo Arena, which was also released as a stand-alone game.

The original music for Lone Echo and Echo Arena combines ambient, analog synth soundscapes with gritty drums and features the ethereal vocals of Malukah. Lone Echo and Echo Arena were released on July 20, 2017.

In this episode, JASON GRAVES talks through a LONE ECHO suite that he wrote and includes how he incorporated the heavenly vocals of Malukah in subtle and surprising ways throughout the piece. He goes on to share how he combines this with his extensive use of synthesizers to underline the games’ central focus: the relationship between humanity and technology.
