Total sketchy madness from Cliff Martinez with the Far Cry 4 - Original Soundtrack. I must say, I bloody love computer game music and this is no exception. It goes from some kitsch "middle-eastern" psy-trancey drum & bass into an atmospheric not-quite-traditional Indian and/or Indonesian vibe with tuned percussion. Always some industrial Reznor-esque-ness chucked in too. Out on CD from Invada. Where's my controller, I need a fix.

8/10 Laurie Staff review, 17 June 2015

I haven’t played this game. So instead of an assessment of how it elaborates the game’s nuanced story, have some Cliff Martinez factoids courtesy of Norman Towers - he played on the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ first 2 records, played with Captain Beefheart, and lost to Eno in the OST race for the Spore game, only landing himself the menu music.

Actually I did watch a friend play the first hour or so, with that cutscene where Pagan Min comes to you for a nice chat via helicopter. He seemed nice and polite. Anyway I get the basic gist - civil war is raging in a fictional Himalayan country near Nepal, but no one really cares about that cos you’re just here to shoot ‘em up, right? The best thing about this is that Mr. Martinez used traditional Nepalese instruments to fit the setting, and not a Javanese Gamelan or something as equally culturally nonsensical. Of course, he then had to spruce things up with samples of big beatz because it’s 2015 and big beatz r tha best. He’s got a natural knack for building these frantic electronic pieces being a drummer, and melds Himalayan touches such as throat singing with this to keep in theme.

It’s the tasty atmospheric pieces that are best though, deep and steady moving, centred around a couple of bell-like instruments playing beautifully off each other. I’d probably check this out even if you haven’t played the game or tried to blag a review, because Cliff’s a good guy when it comes to this music thing.
