gibbsy_01 A great game needs a great soundtrack. Journey is quite possibly the most beautiful game I have ever played and this soundtrack is without a doubt one of the best in video game history. it is truely a work of art. fantastic job. Favorite track: I Was Born For This.

replicant_hazard There has never been such a perfect synthesis between game and music before or after Journey. Guided by the recognizable main motive, we follow the Traveler through awe, pain, hardship, epiphany and bliss and so does the masterfully composed music roar, hurt, inspire, soar, evolve and transcend together with us. Journey is an absolute delight for the senses, it shows you something incredible and leaves you open-mouthed rethinking your life for days. Favorite track: Threshold.

  • JOURNEY: Signed limited edition vinyl
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Courtesy of the fine folks at iam8bit, JOURNEY at long last receives a proper 2-LP vinyl release with fantastic new artwork by Mark Englert. The album has been totally remastered by Sony as well, and so the final package is the product of a lot of love.

    Each copy will be signed by me. Unsigned copies for $35 are available via iam8bit's site below.

    Shipping is a bit pricey on this to ensure high quality, insured shipping, with tracking numbers, since I don't have any replacement inventory.

    At long last here on Bandcamp, the signed JOURNEY soundtrack CD!

    This is identical to the Sumthing Else release of the CD, despite the timing corresponding to the HD remaster release of JOURNEY on PS4. There is nothing different about this release so if you already bought on via Amazon or elsewhere, this isn't different (other than being signed!).

Before I say anything about JOURNEY, I want to use these pages to call special attention to what, for me, is most noteworthy about the music: the brilliant musicians responsible for bringing it all to life. Amy Tatum (flute/bass flute); Charissa Barger (harp); Rodney Wirtz (viola); Noah Gladstone (serpent); Sara Andon (flute); Lisbeth Scott (vocals); Oleg Kontradenko and the Macedonia Radio Symphonic Orchestra; and at the heart of it all, cellist Tina Guo. I often say that my music isn’t music until a musician has gotten their hands on it but never was that more true than with this score.

Beyond my inexhaustible praise for the musicians, I am not sure that I’ll ever be able to properly articulate the impact JOURNEY has had on my life. The ambitions thatgamecompany had for this game were immense and extremely exciting. This was the sort of game I’d dreamt to be a part of my entire life, especially as an adult. And yet as ready as I felt, as it turned out, their dream to create a game which fostered a genuine connection between two disparate people required a tremendous amount of soul searching on my part, and all of my convictions about music and composing were called into question. For the longest time (out of a total three years spent working on it!), I was terrified that I wouldn’t be able to rise to the occasion and deliver on a level remotely on par with what thatgamecompany was creating. And truthfully, I remain unsure, despite the deeply humbling and exhilarating response from players.

But therein lies the lesson I feel I’ve learned from this experience. We all love to throw around clichés like “life is about the journey, not the destination,” but I don’t think I had ever truly internalized that until working on this game. I am most proud and excited about the process I underwent in contributing to JOURNEY, rather than the final product itself. It was the perfect culmination of everything in my life up until that point, and I believe the perfect prelude to whatever new mountain lies over the next hill.
