The original BioShock earned critical and fan praise for a host of reasons, including its haunting score. Rapture's underwater dystopia had plenty of licensed old-timey music, but dramatic moments were punctuated by an instrumental score from composer Garry Schyman. So good news, music fans. Irrational creative director Ken Levine has revealed that Schyman has returned to pen the score for the upcoming BioShock Infinite.
"We're proud to announce that Garry Schyman, composer of BioShock 1 and 2 has returned to the composer's chair for BioShock Infinite," Levine told Reddit. "His score is very different from the first two games, yet very much guided by the same aesthetic principles. We were lucky to have him and I can't wait until you get to hear some of his stuff. He's working in a different, sparer style, but it's awesome."
