Petri Alanko – Alan Wake 2

Returning to ‘The Dark Place’, BAFTA-nominated composer, musician and producer Petri Alanko’s latest musical adventure was composing the intense duality and character-driven score for Remedy’s supernatural horror sequel, ALAN WAKE II. Alanko curated the game’s unique surreal soundscape with Remedy’s custom-built Apprehension Engine (multi instrumental device), Mega Marvin (metallic percussion instrument), and other manipulated percussion sounds sourced from a ‘plate reverb’. As the narrative unfolds, the melodies and harmonies are to tied to each character but their different soundscapes and unique instrumentation evolve and intertwine as the worlds collide between protagonist Saga in her world and Alan Wake in ‘The Dark Place’.
