Life In 360˚: Heroes Required, Music Supplied

We end the week on Life In 360 with something musical in part due to award winning composer Richard Jacques. A composer for television and film, he is perhaps better known for his work within the video game industry. His credits include notable SEGA franchises such as OutRun, Sonic The Hedgehog and Jet Set Radio. As well as his critically acclaimed work on Headhunter and James Bond 007: Blood Stone.

Richard Jacques Heroville

Earlier this year Jacques released a brand new album by the name of Heroville. Recorded at Abbey Road studios the album is described by the composer as “an exhilarating collection of tracks for big band and orchestra featuring an eclectic range of styles from animated family fun to heroic adventure, romance and tension”. Earlier this month the West One Music Group, which manages licencing for the album, released a new 360 degree video of the orchestra in full flow as it recorded the album and is that which you can see below.

VRFocus will be back with more examples of 360 degree video next week. You can find Richard Jacques’ Heroville available to buy on iTunes here: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/heroville-original-soundtrack/id1138253651
