    Renowned composer Tom Salta has written and produced an original music score for Red Steel 2.  In Red Steel 2, the player becomes a swordsman who finds himself in a remote mixed metropolis in the middle of the American desert, where Eastern and Western cultures collide.  To reflect this adventurous new setting in Red Steel 2, Salta composed an action packed ‘Wild West’ guitar driven score blended with evocative Asian music influences.

    For the Red Steel 2 score, Salta enlisted the virtuosic guitar performances of veteran studio musician Steve Ouimette and recorded various instrumentalists for Chinese percussion, Shakuhachi, Fue, Pipa, harmonica and violin.  Salta previously scored the original Red Steel soundtrack that received numerous accolades for its vibrant musical palette, including IGN’s Wii Award for Best Original Music.

    “Tom Salta is an extremely versatile composer and delivers a unique and dynamic soundtrack for Red Steel 2,” said Isabelle Ballet, music supervisor for Red Steel 2.  “He has crafted various music styles including mixing blues guitars with traditional Asian instruments to produce an energetic, hybrid score that motivates and immerses players in the action.  We can’t wait to share this experience with everyone!”
