Gustavo Santaolalla


For a very small article, but still to be with you, I suggest a detour by a great Argentinean musician: Gustavo Santaolalla.
Another one who is not very well known.
Another one whose talent allowed great games to become very great games.
Another one who deserves to be known and recognized.

He still managed to win the Oscar for Best Film Score twice: for Babel in 2006 and for Brokeback Mountain in 2005.

In the field of video games, he is the astonishing composer of the soundtrack of the series: The Last of us.

And , well, I confess that this excerpt from Babel, for the moment I am not tired of it.

It may be a little sad, as music – but sadness and beauty go well together – as long as it’s not every day.

Oui, je vous embrasse encore du fond de ma Provence

  1. This is very true… good to air this name!
    I don’t know why, but this music reminds me of Beyond Good and Evil game (I think because I want to play it)… I think you know this one, I may remember a earlier post… At the same time, it is so different. I am glad to know this!!! Thanks!!!
    (That game is one of my top favorites, I am surprised there wasn’t a sequel!)
    I love game music before I love game!
    Hoped you are well!!!!!!!
