Follow Friday: Sam Hulick – Mass Effect Soundtrack Composer
A short while ago, composer Sam Hulick (best known for his award winning work throughout the Mass Effect trilogy) was tapped to work with Overhaul Games on their highly anticipated (I want this as much as I do Diablo 3!) Extended Edition release of Baldur’s Gate.
By the way, for all you purists out there, the original soundtrack composed for Baldur’s Gate will remain in the new release. Sam’s stated on Twitter that he’ll be scoring for the new content, using the original content as inspiration.
Find out more about Sam Hulick and his work after the break.
Sam’s work, a blend of analog synth with orchestra, is considered iconic of Mass Effect by BioWare fans but reaches farther than the space-faring trilogy. His soundtracks for the 2011 WWII release Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad (PC) and Maximo vs the Army of Zin (PS2) are both awe-inspiring and expertly crafted.
For all this and his awesome work on the Mass Effect 3 soundtrack, Sam Hulick is this week’s Follow Friday.
