Once again we find ourselves at another Weekly Wrap-Up! I am excited to say this is the 4th issue! Well, what can I say about the previous week? Plenty that’s what! As any Tomb Raider fan knows the big buzz throughout Tomb Raider recently was Pax East! There were many things learned and many fine panelists bestowing their information and exciting contributions to the Tomb Raider community. Let’s get started to find out how to leave Tomb Raider Uncovered for this week!
This is something wonderful this way come! I cannot wait to get this album. Here is the information from Crystal Dynamics!
Revealed last week at the PAX East panel, original franchise composer Nathan McCree is returning to his roots with a new musical endeavor titled, “The Tomb Raider Suite.”
The collection will include all classic compositions, as well as extensions and variations of original tracks from the first three Tomb Raider titles. The suite will then be recorded by a live orchestra at the famous Abbey Road Studios, and released for purchase on CD and digital download this autumn.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for the fans, as well as me, to hear the music as I had always intended it,” said McCree.
Alongside the album, a live performance of the suite is planned at a major venue in London to correspond with the official 20th anniversary of the original Tomb Raider’s release in 1996. More details and ticketing information will be made available at a later date.
The entire process – from re-composing the tracks to the final live concert – will be recorded for a TV documentary called Tomb Raider: Remastered. Director Matthew Longfellow, a leader in music documentaries for his work with legends such as Pink Floyd, Metallica, and Queen, will take the helm of the documentary.
PAX EAST TREAT: TOMB RAIDER: THE TRILOGY (1998)
This is certainly a great treat for any Tomb Raider fan! The following video is exclusive and something that has not been seen until recently!
Produced in 1998 by Silver Films for the Tomb Raider III launch party, The Trilogy was never screened outside the event at the Natural History Museum in London that evening. Thanks to Producer Janey de Nordwall, who recently found the original digibeta tape, we’re able to share the short online in its original quality for the first time. de Nordwall went on to win a BAFTA for her production work and now runs the British Arrow Awards.
Tomb Raider: The Trilogy captured the spirit of the Tomb Raider phenomenon and impact of Lara Croft in the late 90s, wrapped up in a detective-noir setting.
