Later we get an inside look at Rob’s work on Asgard’s Wrath - how he has handled the composition from a technical point of view and also what his approach was on the stylistic, instrumental and orchestral side of things. Then Rob and George share some stories and details about other interesting projects they’ve been part of.
Another theme on focus in that second part of the podcast is the orchestra recording sessions. Rob mentions which the tricky parts are for him and how he manages them.
The final minutes of the podcast are occupied with our blitz questions and the fantastic main theme of Remnant: From the Ashes. Enjoy listening!
