Exclusive Interview – Composer Cris Velasco talks Darksiders III, Fortnite, and video game immersion

Red Stewart chats with Cris Velasco about his video game scores….

Cris Velasco is an American composer who has been working in the video game, television, and film industries since the early-2000s. He is best known for his compositions for games like Jericho, Borderlands, and Bloodborne.

Flickering Myth had the privilege to talk to him about his work on Darksiders III and Fortnite, and I in turn had the honor to conduct it:

Darksiders has always drawn heavily on the Abrahamic religions for its story and mythos, and Darksiders III is no exception to that with the main plot being the confrontation and destruction of the 7 Deadly Sins. For your score for Darksiders III, did you draw upon church music or other religious sounds to help formulate the sound? Or was it independent of those influences?

For the most part, all the music in Darksiders III is a purely original sound.
