Clint Mansell to do Mass Effect 3 Soundtrack


If you've ever seen a three legged dog, you've seen me....
According to the official Mass Effect Facebook page (?) Chris Mansell is the score composer for Mass Effect 3
The Facebook update read: "Have you ladies and gents seen Black Swan or The Wrestler? Mass Effect 3 scored the same composer! Promises to be a fantastic soundtrack!"
Mr Mansell has been quoted around the traps as saying the following about music and gaming:
“As I was saying about Public Enemy and re-working old hip-hop tunes for Requiem, and kind of re-working old ballet tunes for Black Swan, with something like Mass Effect you're more like a DJ, with all these elements. You've got the holding pattern, then the big explosion where you need the score to kick in. Then you need to take it off on a tangent. You've got all these different elements that change depending on what the player does. You have to figure out an overall symphony, but be able to break it down into component parts. You can bring the pain when required.”
