THE MEDIUM: Brand-New Featurette Focuses on the Sounds of the Terrifying Spirit World

Polish video game developer and publisher Bloober Team is ramping up The Medium marketing campaign, with the horror project's latest trailer putting the spotlight on the renowned creative minds behind its OST.

In The Medium, you will try to solve a terrible child murder case as Marianne, a young heroin who possesses a truly rare power to explore two dimensions — including the terrifying Spirit World — at the same time.

In order to help players immerse themselves in the dark world of The Medium, Bloober Team has asked two award-winning composers — Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill 2, Shadows of the Damned) and Arkadiusz Reikowski (Kholat, Observer) — to create fresh compositions reflecting the stark differences between the two realities.

"For me, personally, horror is not just about using scary, startling sounds or quiet, unsettling sounds," Yamaoka said. "But also about using sounds that feel completely alien to that world and music that feels out of place to create startling and unsettling effects. Both are necessary," the composer added.
