Composer Jason Graves scoring 'Dead Space 2'

LOS ANGELES — Composer Jason Graves (www.jasongraves.com) is working on the psycho-dramatic orchestral score for Dead Space 2 , the next installment in the action/horror videogame franchise. The original music reflects hero Isaac Clarke's dementia and nightmarish personal journey.

Graves created an intricately woven thematic movement for the game. "Lacrimosa" is a concerto for a string quartet that runs throughout the game. The game (www.deadspacegame.com) also includes haunting Unitology choral compositions, visceral action music and string arrangements performed by musicians at Skywalker Sound.

Graves composed the soundtrack for the original Dead Space , which has been called one of the scariest gamed ever made. The follow-up release will be available in late January of 2011.
