Indie game soundtrack composer David Burrows and audio veteran Mike Daw have joined forces to create a new music collective that aims to make the process of creating the perfect game soundtrack easy for game developers.
Between them the pair have created soundtracks for over 50 games and TV shows with music spanning a massive range of styles and genres.
The Audio Grill has already produced music and audio for a number of 2013's notable indie releases including ‘Solar Flux HD,’ ‘Avoid Droid,’ ‘GunMonkeys,’ ‘Paradigm Shift’ and TIGA-nominated Frutorious, as well as BBC Three pilot ‘Biffovision’. The duo are currently working on delivering a full audio solution for ‘Division Cell’, the exciting new project from Hyperspace Yard.
As a collective, their combined experience of the game design process marks them out as artists capable of creating comprehensive audio experiences which complement characters and environments and enhance gameplay.
Mike said: "We really know and love videogames, and through The Audio Grill we're aiming to harness that passion to bring a new style of collaborative working to game audio development".
Dan Marshall, creator of GunMonkeys, was particularly impressed and in response to public demand he released the soundtrack of his game as a download. The album, described by the Size Five Games developer as 'of blisteringly high quality' is available at http://sizefivegames.bandcamp.com/album/the-sound-of-gun-monkeys.
The Audio Grill has today launched its new website at theaudiogrill.com, where you can listen to a range of samples from the Audio Grill's back catalogue. For the rest of 2013 The Audio Grill are offering a preferential 20% off introductory rate for indie developers.
