Video: Composer Paul Ruskay talks the 70s sound of horror game The Chant

You can’t have psychedelic cosmic horror without 1970s tunes. Or at least, you won’t want to after you hear what Paul Ruskay has to say about it.


Developed by Brass Token and published by Prime Matter, The Chant´s players will experience immersive audio in an atmosphere heavily influenced by the 1970s, including original experimental electronica composed and designed by Paul Ruskay himself.   

Paul Ruskay has been a leading audio producer of music and sound design for the video game, film, and advertising industries for the past 26 years. 

Human beings respond to fear in a physical way, particularly when playing a game filled with cosmic horror and creatures of the unknown. What to expect sonically from The Chant is a mix between paying homage to the classics and keeping things feeling fresh.

Prime Matter press release

From Prime Matter and Brass Monkey, The Chant is scheduled to haunt Xbox Series X|S, PS5, and the PC on November 3rd.
