Soundtrack available on Sony March 18th


Composer Marc Canham scores Sony Entertainment’s InFAMOUS: Second Son, exclusively on Playstation 4, in stores March 21st. InFAMOUS: Second Son has already sold over one million presale copies. The release of the game coincides with the Game Developers Conference, March 17-21 in San Francisco. Set seven years after the ending of InFAMOUS 2, players control Deslin Rowe, a 24 year-old slacker graffiti artist in Seattle. After an encounter with a “Conduit,” or someone with supernatural powers, Deslin becomes one himself, and begins to use his powers to fight the Department of Unified Protection, a government organization bent on destroying all Conduits. The InFAMOUS: Second Son soundtrack is on Sony, now available for pre-order on iTunes, to be released March 18th.

Marc Canham’s score for InFAMOUS: Second Son brings an industrial sound to the game. Canham explains, “I brought an Alternative, layered sound to the score, without it being overly polished.” Canham takes organic sounds and pushes them toward sounding electronic, and in turn takes electronic sounds and pushes them to sound organic, creating a gritty, propulsive score that blurs the genre lines while perfectly complementing Second Sons’ Seattle setting.

Marc Canham is a composer who creates cinematic scores across a range of media.
