|Overview:||Ancient pre-Hispanic cultures viewed music and sound as one unified form to be used in daily life and rituals, and were meant to emulate nature and even the supernatural; in a sense, they were the original sound designers. Drawing inspiration from this, the sound and music team behind 'Shadow of the Tomb Raider' worked together to blur the lines of what is traditionally seen as music and sound design to create a unique and unified approach, while using the very instruments and techniques that these ancient cultures used. Be prepared to be immersed, inspired and surprised in this journey into the heart of the sound of 'Tomb Raider'.|
