Fallout: New Vegas - Listen to “Begin Again”
« am: 25. Januar 2011, 20:34:10 Uhr »
Wie der Bethblog schreibt, gingen nach dem Release von Dead Money einige Anfragen ein, den Song "Begin Again" als mp3 Version zum Download zur Verfügung zu stellen. "Begin Again" ist ein Song, der vom Charakter Vera Keyes gesungen wird und läuft, während ihr das Sierra Madre Kasino erkundet. Das Lied wurde von Justin Bell, Obsidians Sound Designer, (Musik und Text-Setting), Chris Avellone (Lyrics), Audio Producer Mikey Dowling (Lyrics) und Stephanie DeBrule (Vocals) erstellt.

Das Lied könnt ihr euch nun im Bethblog anhören, dazu gibt es noch ein kurzes Interview mit Mikey Dowling und Justin Bell:

What were some of your inspirations for the song?
Mikey Dowling:
For me it was how sorrowful Justin’s music was that inspired the tone of the lyrics. I’m sure he could elaborate more on his end, but in terms of the lyrics, I knew Vera’s story and I knew that Chris had wanted the song to contain the words “begin again,” and “to let go,” somewhere within. I ended up listening to Justin’s song on repeat for a bit and came up with lyrics that I felt would not only capture what Chris had been looking for, but also capture something that could feel as though it would fit in an old Hollywood film.

Justin Bell: Easy – Chopin’s prelude in E minor. I was trying to go for an early 20th century post-romantic sound that fit the period. I didn’t want it to sound too modern, which is why I choose to write the piece on the piano as it’s a timeless instrument. When going for the vocal style, I was thinking Judy Garland — someone with clear diction.

Is this the first time your girlfriend, Stephanie, has sung in an Obsidian game?
Yes it is, actually. She just started here at Obsidian in late July of last year and we found out that she used to do musical theatre when she was younger. When it came time to temp out how the song would work in the game, we turned to Steph. We were so happy with how the song turned out that we wanted to keep it in the game and decided to do a “reverse Disney” and cast someone based on Steph’s singing voice so when the player heard Christine talk in the game, then heard Vera’s song it wouldn’t feel disjointed.

Any plans for a duet?
Ha! Depends on the demands of the product and the time available. Until then, Steph and I will continue to rock random karaoke bars.

Sind die krassen Sound-Artefakte ein Problem meinerseits, ein Problem des Blogs oder gehört es etwa zum Song dazu :wtf

Ich glaub deinerseits, bei mir ist alles normal.

Der Song haut mich jetzt nicht um aber Obsidian beweist immer wieder ihre Liebe für Details.
