“In scoring the soundtrack, it was all about finding the emotional center of the game, which is the story,” explains Michael Giacchino, composer, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty. “To present an America that we recognize, but in an altered reality setting, we changed the make up of the orchestra and removed trumpets from the brass section. In a traditional WWII game or movie, trumpets are used to give an American flavor, however, to mirror Turning Point’s major theme, we’ve stripped that layer of Americana away.”

“Michael has created a series of truly evocative pieces that challenge WWII-themed soundtrack preconceptions; this fits to our alternate-reality subject matter perfectly,” said Scott Langteau, Chief Operating Officer, Spark Unlimited. “It’s a fantastic primal score, full of chaos and energy and Michael’s use of staccato sounds delivers an incredible level of intensity throughout.”

Turning Point: Fall of Liberty is an alternate-history WWII FPS from Codemasters and developer Spark Unlimited. It is currently due out for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in early 2008.
