The independent video game studio known as Red Prawn Games have released their debut music album, the official “Robot Wasteland Game Soundtrack.” The album lies somewhere between an EP and an LP record, having 12 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of over half an hour. Dark, grim, futuristic and entirely immersive, the “Robot Wasteland Game Soundtrack” by Red Prawn Games is an excellent example of the ultra-high quality of music composition in today's new golden age of video gaming.
Red Prawn's “Robot Wasteland” OST is the brainchild of up-and-coming composer Przemyslaw Ksiazek, popularly known by his professional name, Ksamus. Music by Ksamus tends toward the ambient and electronic, very much alive, with sweeping waves of sound which form towering crescendos and sprawling sonic landscapes the mind can easily envision as if pictures were being painted on the canvas of one's imagination. It is the creativity of Ksamus the music fan is hearing, though, which makes it more than likely that the world will be hearing much more from this musician over the next few months and years.
Ksamus cites as main artistic influences J.M. Jarre, Kraftwerk, Vangelis, Klaus Schultze, and Daft Punk.
Asked to comment on Ksamus' work on the background score for their game, Red Prawn writes, “The 'Robot Wasteland' album is by far our best creation music-wise. If successful, we will certainly make more music in the future … Ksamus did a marvelous job composing all the pieces and accurately reflecting the game's mood and climate.”
Red Prawn describes their artistic aims by saying, “Red Prawn Games is an independent game development studio. We make games for smartphones and tablets. We always strive for the best possible quality, and that includes the sound-effects layer as well as the music background.”
The “Robot Wasteland Game Soundtrack” by Red Prawn Games and composed by Ksamus is available online worldwide beginning 22 May 2015.
