"Battleheart" Score by Gravity Music

I am proud to have created the sweeping, heroic score for Mika Mobile's out-of-the-gate hit "Battleheart." The music (and the game's signature sound effect) were created and recorded here on The Bridge at Gravity Music.

Are you looking for real, composed music, played by real musicians? Tired of digging through "ambient/electronica" tracks that sound like Moby passed out on the keyboard of his Korg Karma? Drop me a line at info@gravitymusic.com and let me know what you're looking for.

And thanks to Mika Mobile for the opportunity to write a good score for a really great game.

BTW... sweeping orchestral isn't all we do. Rock guitars, bleeps and bloops, comedy tunes, Foley SFX, light jazz, deep atmospheres, super-pop and weird stylistic mash-ups are part of the stock in trade at Gravity.

Call us for anything.

The soundtrack to Battleheart owns.

That is all.

Thank you kindly, Mr. Hodapp. We worked hard to make it a "real game" soundtrack. Biggest challenge: getting our string players to groove with the "heavy metal upstroke" backbeat on the boss theme. Cello players have not practiced a lot of Metallica riffs.

Gotta agree! Fantastic music. Great job!

(Sorry I don't have a great [or any] job for you.)

I also enjoyed the music for Battleheart. Having said that, I might be down with listening to Moby passed out on the keyboard of his Korg Karma as well. Probably better then listening to his Animal Rights album.

Thank you both, gentlemen.

The Moby joke is actually from MST3K, but they said "sounds like Kitaro fell asleep on his keyboard." I wasn't sure anybody 'round these parts would know or remember who Kitaro was.

Huge bonus points for the MST3K reference! Which episode was it? I wanna say Space Mutiny..?

I was going to post something very close to this when I opened the thread. Instead, I'll just give a +1.

Maybe I should release a "Mika's Greatest Hits" EP on iTunes.
