In the newest gameplay trailer from IMGN.PRO and Fools Theory’s SEVEN: The Days Long Gone, players can listen to the track that will appear in the end credits of the game – fragments of it will also be used in Artee village. Granted, the latest trailer also features some gameplay so that is also worth a look. But it is absolutely worth a listen.
Musician Gavin Dunne feels very strongly about his work for SEVEN, “When the crew at IMGN.PRO told me about this game’s setting and story, I was immediately interested, especially after seeing the gameplay videos. They created a great atmosphere – dark, dirty, raw, and mildly futuristic. I enjoy writing and singing in that gruff, grimy future-blues style. Besides, I was already a big fan of Marcin’s work on the Witcherseries. The song created for SEVEN is bluesy, drenched in old-style Americana, and it evokes the melancholy undertones of lost history and civilizations through the junk instruments used by Marcin and the crew.”
The musician also explains that the lyrics – which are connecting to the Artee tribe’s philosophy and history – are about preservation, celebration, and protection of art as a means of documenting history.
Marcin Przybyłowicz, creator of the score, had this to say about the game, “SEVEN is a fantastic project to me – there’s lots of space for creativity and a suggestive world showing a humanity that has managed to rise again after an apocalypse. In such conditions, people would create music differently – they would probably play on antique or handmade instruments. That’s why, with the help of instrument collector Paweł Romańczuk, I’ve chosen from over a hundred weird, old exhibits from his collection; a couple of the most unusual ones that created unconventional sounds include an over-100-year-old Stroh violin, a bucket bass (a twisted variation of the double bass), a bucket cello, and a cardboard cello. But we also have guitar parts recorded by the excellent Polish guitarist Krzysztof Łochowicz. This makes SEVEN’s music edgy and gives it a lot of character, grime, rust, and aeration”.
