We, at FluffyLogic, are really pleased to see that the music for ‘Savage Moon: Waldgeist‘ has been nominated for an Ivor Novello award. The Ivor Novello Awards (aka The Ivors) are named after the Cardiff born entertainer Ivor Novello. The awards are for excellence in music and this is the first year that they have included games and the category Waldgeist has been nominated for is the Best Original Video Game Score.
The Ivors are a prestigious, worldwide recognition of musical talent and are judged and presented by the music-writing community. Other artists/writers nominated this year include songs performed by Dizzie Rascal, La Roux, Bat for Lashes, Lily Allen and Paolo Nutini. We asked Armin for a comment and he said, “It has been a great pleasure to create the soundtrack to the Savage Moon series of games on Playstation3 and PSP for FluffyLogic LTD. The thriving Bristol music scene has had a major influence on the music I compose bringing in flavours of dubstep, drum & bass and breakcore. Computer games have generally had quite traditional sounding orchestral soundtracks for a while now, and to be able to bring in more experimental music to the games market has been a real challenge. “
As such we’d like to say a huge ‘congratulations’ to the sound designer and composer, Armin Elsaesser (aka Parasite). He is up against some strong competition for the award; Empire: Total War and Killzone 2. Fingers crossed…

Update: Sadly Armin did not win, but congratulations to Killzone 2 who did!
