The award winning* Horizon Zero Dawn soundtrack has been a collaboration between composers Joris de Man, The Flight, Niels van der Leest, Jonathan Williams and the Guerrilla Games Audio Team. Opting for a thematic approach, Horizon Zero Dawn has a strong iconic motif, variations of which can be heard throughout the game, for a diverse yet cohesive soundtrack.
The opening piece of music features Julie Elven‘s solo, which interweaves with the game’s main theme. It’s a powerful piece, even more so when considered in context with our protagonist Aloy. From the moment you meet Aloy as a child, Julie Elven’s voice is there to guide her, always there in the background, even as Aloy has to endure the darkest moments of her journey.
When exploring the game’s open world, the intention was for the music to blend in with the environment's natural background sounds, complementing the ever evolving - but never overbearing - soundscape, adapting to both the regions and their day and night cycles.
The themes written by Joris de Man are interwoven throughout the entire soundtrack, leading the player from the initial prologue to the emotional epilogue. “Battle” music is never overstated. Instead it reflects the electronic/digital origins of the enemies. In comparison, percussion offers a natural contrast to the “digital” sounding world of the machines, reflecting the tribal themes of living in the wild.
In addition, the vinyl box set includes an entire side full of music that has never been heard outside of the game. This includes a collection of short emotional vignettes, which evoke memories from the game, such as witnessing its stunning sunsets.
