Gareth Coker Has Fun With Dinosaurs In ARK: Survival Evolved

Gareth Coker's massive soundtrack for ARK: Survival Evolved is as huge as the dinosaurs you can train and battle! As he told me, developing the music while the game was in early access provided all kinds of unexpected challenges.

 

Kate's conversation with Gareth

 

 

Gareth says composing the soundtrack for a huge 93-piece orchestra and recording it in Abbey Road's gigantic Studio One was a dream come true! He put the stellar Philharmonia Orchestra through their paces with his epic boss battle music, but, he says, they all brought their A Game when it came time to record the track for the final boss, The Overseer. In fact, they nailed it 12 minutes!
