New video highlights the musical score to The Last of Us

Sony has released a new video for their upcoming post-apocalyptic adventure title The Last of Us which delves into the haunting musical score composed by two-time Academy Award winner Gustavo Santaolalla.

In the first two minutes of the video, Santaolalla talks about his musical background, while from 3 minutes or so onward he begins talking about his work on the The Last of Us, his first venture into video games. If you’re a fan of film scores then you’ll have heard of Santaolalla through his incredible work on films like Babel, 21 Grams, and Brokeback Mountain. His music in the The Last of Us is definitely going to attract a lot of attention once the game is out. The piece heard at the beginning of the video is especially beautiful.

A post on the official PlayStation blog has also revealed that the game’s score is “coming soon” to Sony’ music service Music Unlimited.
