Ben Lukas Boysen and Sebastian Plano’s collaborative score for Everything arrives in July

Ben Lukas Boysen & Sebastian Plano - EverythingThe latest offering from Erased Tapes comes from the hands of two incredible composers, Ben Lukas Boysen and Sebastian Plano, who were brought together to compose the score for Everything, a video game created by Irish animator David O’Reilly’s and narrated by the late British philosopher Alan Watts. An interactive experience and simulation game, Everything lets the player explore everything. Whether it’s plants or animals or galaxies, the player can take the role of anything and simply be it.

“Composing something quite modular yet coherent that connects with the idea and fabric of the game was quite a task”, explained Boysen. “We discussed many approaches, from really mathematical and direct, to abstract and philosophical, and we ended up with a mixture of both. Every element depends and builds on another and connects to previous and following songs. May it be on a compositional or on an abstract and conceptual level, the game and the music follow the same path and shares almost the same inspirational DNA”.

Everything will be out physically on July 28th and ahead of it Boysen and Plano have shared a track from it, the magnificent ‘Winding and Unwinding’.
