Advent Rising XBOX video game soundtrack due 6/28

Musical Score Features 70-Piece Hollywood Union Orchestra and Members of World-Famous Operatic Choir

EDISON NJ – Building on the excitement surrounding the May launch of one of their most-anticipated products, Majesco (NASDAQ: MJES), a provider of diversified products and content for digital entertainment platforms, today announced an ensemble of top Hollywood and award-winning musical talent behind the video game soundtrack for Advent Rising.

Recorded at Paramount Pictures, Hollywood, CA, the Advent Rising soundtrack is a completely original musical score that incorporates live orchestral and vocal elements to create a variety of musical themes utilized throughout the game. The soundtrack is also planned for retail release to coincide with the game.

"Our approach with Advent Rising was to create a game play experience similar to that of an epic film," said Ken Gold, vice president of Marketing for Majesco. "Creating a powerful soundtrack was a key component to evoking a higher level of player emotion and allowing the player to feel completely immersed in the Advent universe while playing the game."

Majesco contracted a 70-piece Hollywood union orchestra, which was led by Emmy Award-winning conductor Mark Watters. The score was then mixed and recorded by Armin Steiner, the Grammy Award-winning mixing engineer best known for his work on such blockbusters movies as Finding Nemo, Seabiscuit, and The Matrix trilogy.

Composition and sound design was created by award-winning composer and video game sound designer Tommy Tallarico, who enlisted the talents of a world famous operatic choir and their complimenting children’s choir united to perform the music’s extraordinary chorus. Emerging RCA recording artist Charlotte Martin co-wrote and performed lead vocals and piano for the song “Greater Lights,” which is featured on the soundtrack.
