New Interview with OotP Video Game Composer

In a new interview with IGN, James Hannigan, the composer of the score for the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix video game, talks about composing the almost seventy minutes of music featured throughout the game. Mr. Hannigan told IGN:

"Order of the Phoenix is possibly less linear and episodic than the earlier games, and this changes what you do with music. It's easy to forget that a big part of putting music in games is deciding when and why you hear it - and not just about creating something in a 'Harry Potter style'!"

He also notes that, for the first time, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone film composer John Williams' "Hedwig's Theme" was incorporated throughout the game. Mr. Hannigan says of the famous theme in his new score: "...Hedwig's theme goes a long way in binding everything together!"

You can hear some of the beautiful music as well as more from Mr. Hannigan himself, in a video from video game makers EA we first showed you a few days ago, that is now available to download in our video galleries.

The Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix video game will be released on June 25th, and is available to pre-order via our own Cauldron Shop.
