Control scores a double whammy of musical talent for its score

Remedy and 505 Games have announced that when Control ships this August for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, the game will have a soundtrack crafted by two amazing composers, Martin Stig Andersen and Petri Alanko.

Andersen has worked on a larger variety of titles, his more recent efforts are that of Inside and Wolfensten II: The New Colossus, which are very different genres for sure. Alanko is someone that Remedy game fans should know, as he was worked on Alan Wake and more recently, Quantum Break.

"I couldn't imagine a better match for Control than Petri Alanko and Martin Stig Andersen. Martin's deep and moody style combined with the unique energy of Petri Alanko elevates the end result into something special,” said Control’s Game Director Mikael Kasurinen. “While both capture the tone of the experience, they approach it from different perspectives, complementing each other beautifully."


"We knew Control required a very specific form of music to fit the aesthetic vision. Given the exceptional scores of their previous projects including Alan Wake, Limbo and Inside, it was clear to us that combining the talents of both Petri Alanko and Martin Stig Andersen would be perfect for creating such a weird, supernatural soundtrack for Control," said Control’s Senior Audio Designer Ville Sorsa.

Control’s score is being carefully crafted to back an ever-changing world that juxtaposes reality with the unexplainable. Andersen and Alanko’s scores will mirror Control’s dynamic gameplay elements by evolving around the game’s moments of stirring surrealism and fierce action.

The game is releasing on August 27th for Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4
