Prince of Persia - The Forgotten Sands Soundtrack Preview

Oh Ubisoft, why do you tease us so? First you tempt us with the oh-so awesome sounds of Tom Salta’s music for Red Steel 2 last month, and yet, no word on a soundtrack album release for it. And now, you dangle Mr. Salta’s music in front of our willing ears, again! This time for the forthcoming Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands for the Nintendo Wii. Have we been bad video game music fans? No confirmed soundtrack release for this either? Come inside, take a listen, and if you have a magic lamp lying about, please rub it and wish for the Ubisoft genie to grant us a wish.

Showing just how versatile he is with his knowledge of music styles, Tom Salta has gone from the Ramen Western themes of Red Steel 2 to the more traditional, sand swept sounds of the Prince’s Persia. Check out the middle-eastern native percussion sounds of “Sacred Ascent.”

Salta makes great use of traditional instruments and melodies as heard here in The Garden.

Striking a nice balance between up beat rhythms and subdued melody is this piece, entitled “Camros.”

The Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands score features performances by both world music singer Azam Ali and vocals by international recording artist Judith Bérard. I am not sure which of these two ladies is featured on this track, but, firstly they are gorgeous sounding and secondly, they add lovely tonal authenticity to the Prince’s world.

On the whole, these sneak peaks into the sound of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands are instantly enjoyable. They are on the more traditional and ethereal side of the sound spectrum and I imagine once we hear more from the Nintendo Wii game we will get some more fast paced compositions for the action sequences. And here is hoping the Ubisoft music genie has heard our wishes.
