Soundtrack September: Journey

Game: Journey (2012)
Platform: PlayStation 3 (later PlayStation 4)
Composer: Austin Wintory

Journey is an artful and mercifully wordless adventure game from Thatgamecompany, makers of Flow and Flower. The plot follows the travels of a mysterious nomad in a cloak, who alternately trudges up and glides down desert dunes in a story that could be viewed as either open to interpretation or completely unimportant.

Rather than read what I have to say about it, however, I recommend you witness the composer's comments directly in the video below. Wintory given us a rare window of insight, annotating the entire soundtrack with text commentary about its creation.
