On Christmas Day, two keen music fans leaked their version of the as-yet unreleased original symphonic music composed for the the video game, Destiny.
There is of course a Beatle connection here in the form of Sir Paul McCartney who contributed to the soundtrack for the game, most notably the end-credits song ‘Hope for the Future‘.
The Destiny: Music of the Spheres suite is the work of Martin O’Donnell and Michael Salvatori, but it took the fan duo of Tlohtzin Espinosa and Owen Spence to bring it to the public. They spent more than a year pulling together all the elements they could get their hands on to compile what is essentially a complete soundtrack album of Destiny:
You can hear it on Soundcloud, and on YouTube. Download links are out there on the World Wide Web too if you are interested.
There’s more background on how all this came to be in an article on the Ars Technica site, plus you should also see this Reddit post by the two fans who took the risk of putting it out there in the first place.
I don’t get it for the moment, after the above mentioned leak, the album should be released this year. Bungie said, music of the spheres would be released in fall 2018, according to the following link as part of a limited edition vinyl boxed set. But this set is already sold out. I never read a word about the release nor dr. google finds something. Do you know more about it?
Sorry, forgot to post the bungie link: https://bungiestore.com/products/the-music-of-destiny-volume-i-limited-edition-collectors-vinyl-box-set
Thanks for the link. You are correct. How can it be sold out when no one ever heard about it even being released?
Anyway, we signed up to be sent an email “when available”……maybe some info will come through eventually.
