“As I began to work with the team, I wanted to stick to the art direction and knew with this beautiful low-poly style world the music had to be a mix of epic and soft classical sounds with a bit of added electronics and effects,” said Clément Peres, Sound Designer for Izle.  “I wanted the player to really feel like they were in the world that the team created, and as the world gets rich, I wanted the player to feel the different environments accentuated by my music.”

Peres started making music 10 years ago when he was asked to create and original soundtrack for an amateur video game.  This led to a deep relationship with videogame soundtracks and heavy influences from BioShock, Disasterpeace’s FEZ and the Last of Us.  Peres credits inspirations such as classical music artists Zimmer and Santaolalla.  Additionally, electronic artists including IDM, and melodic electronica like Plaid and Kettel were huge influences on the soundtrack.
