Erneut gibt es Neues zu berichten von der Spielemusik-Front. In Kooperation mit den Microsoft Game Studios wird Sumthing Else Music Works künftig den Soundtrack zu Peter Molyneux' Rollenspiel-Epos Fable im Handel anbieten, darunter natürlich auch in Onlineshops à la Amazon. Das ehrgeizige Projekt war nach langjähriger Entwicklungszeit am 8. Oktober vergangenen Jahres endlich für die Xbox erschienen.
 
Für das Hauptthema verantwortlich zeichnet Danny Elfman, dessen Arbeit nebst dreifacher Nominierungen für einen Academy Award sogar bereits mit einem Grammy geadelt wurde. Elfman hat sich durch die musikalischen Untermalungen von Filmen wie Chicago, Batman, Spider-Man, Men In Black, The Nightmare Before Christmas sowie Beetlejuice einen Namen machen können. Basierend auf seiner Komposition erschuf Russel Shaw, Audio Director und Composer der Lionhead Studios, folglich den gesamten Soundtrack zum Heldenabenteuer.

SUMTHING ELSE MUSIC WORKS ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF THE ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK CD FOR THE XBOX® VIDEO GAME FABLE®

FEATURING THE FABLE THEME BY DANNY ELFMAN AND MUSIC BY RUSSELL SHAW

New York - February 25th, 2005 - Sumthing Else Music Works, Inc., through its licensing relationship with Microsoft Game Studios, proudly presents Fable Original Soundtrack featuring the "Fable Theme" by Danny Elfman and musical score by Russell Shaw. The soundtrack from the ground-breaking Xbox® roleplaying adventure game, developed by Peter Molyneux and Lionhead Studios, is released today to US retail outlets through Nile Rodgers’ Sumthing Else Music Works label www.sumthing.com, the #1 record label and distributor of game soundtracks.

Danny Elfman, three-time Academy Award®-nominee and GRAMMY® Award winner, is best known for his unique musical style and has contributed to the soundtracks of dozens of popular films including Chicago, Batman, Spider-Man, Men In Black, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Beetlejuice.

Russell Shaw, Audio Director and Composer at Lionhead Studios, expanded on Elfman’s theme to create the epic and wholly immersive orchestral soundtrack for the ultimate roleplaying adventure gaming experience. Shaw’s previous scoring credits include Black And White.

Fable has received numerous awards including Game of the Year from Play Magazine and Role Playing Game of the Year from Spike TV awards. Fable has also recently received industry honors for the outstanding music in the game including the award for Outstanding Achievement in Original Musical Composition at the Eighth Annual Interactive Achievement Awards ceremony, hosted by the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences (AIAS) at the D.I.C.E. Summit in Las Vegas. In addition the music in Fable has won Best Score from Xbox Nation Magazine and from Play Magazine.

In Fable, the player's every action determines their character's skills, appearances and moralities. Characters’ life stories are created from childhood to adulthood and continue to old age. They can grow from an inexperienced child into the most powerful being in the world, spoken of by all and immortalized in legend. Players may choose the path of righteousness or dedicate their characters' lives to evil; observing as they transform into reflections of their actions and decisions. Advancing age leaves characters wizened, battle leaves them scarred, gluttony affects obesity. With experiences come advancement and physical change; whether it is by expanding muscles, a keen eye and nimble form or the buzz of magical energies around their finger tips. As players' characters develop, the world reacts to them and their actions. People comment on their successes, failures, appearances and behaviors. Their many opinions are expressed through applause, mockery, trepidation, panic and even flirtation. In Fable, gamers decide: "Who will I be?"
