ASCAP award-winning composer and producer Lance Hayes is returning to provide custom music forForza Motorsport 4. Lance Hayes’ original soundtrack for Forza Motorsport 3 was hailed as one of the best electronic albums of 2010 by several outlets.
The new soundtrack features a broad range of music styles and overall chill demeanor encompassing primarily electronica, ambient and downtempo with forays into ambient breaks, illbient and acid jazz.
Audio Director Nick Wiswell: “The music of Lance Hayes is an integral component of the UI of Forza Motorsport 4, as it was in Forza Motorsport 3. The menus in Forza Motorsport 4 are vast and many players will spend hours in them setting up tuning options or creating liveries; Lance has provided 15 songs to make this experience as enjoyable and varied as possible for the player. He also produced 4 tracks for the in-game race soundtrack which are very different in tempo, scope and feel, showing the breadth of his compositional skills.”
Composer Lance Hayes: “I was honored to be brought back to work on an expanded soundtrack creating over 100 minutes of music for the UI as well as the in-game experience. The score has an increased cinematic feel as well as incorporating many of the styles (downtempo, electronic, ambient) that made the Forza 3 OST a fan favorite.”
