The Music of ‘Rain’ – Developer Diary

The Music of ‘Rain’ – Developer Diary

by SamAugust 26, 2013

The Playstation 3 has had a number of games released on it which to some extent bases it charm around sensory perception rather than dialogue or gameplay mechanics. Similar to games like The Unfinished Swan, Flower or Journey, Rain is shaping up to be about the experience over the other elements – and even if it doesn’t it seems to have the music to back it up.

In this latest developer diary for the game, you are taken behind the scenes to see how the music and sound has become an integral component when building the world of “rain”. The games main theme is based on the famous Clair de Lune movement of the Suite Bergamasque piano suite by Claude Debussy. The theme is vocalized by 12 year old British vocalist Connie Talbot – who first came to the public attention back in 2007 after reaching the finals of the very first Britain’s Got Talent series

Rain was developed by the Playstation C.A.M.P. program in collaboration with Acquire and SCE’s Japan Studio. It is set for release on the 1st October 2013 internationally.
