Film, television and videogame composer Garry Schyman has created the original music score for the newest installment of the Destroy All Humans! videogame series. Developed by Sandblast Games (THQ Inc.), Destroy All Humans!® Path of the Furon™ is set in the 1970s and the game’s score is inspired by music styles from that era. Schyman’s musical influences for the game include classic 70s film scores by Lalo Schifrin, Jerry Goldsmith and Roy Budd. The score was recorded with a live symphony orchestra, as well as brass band, flute soloist, saxophone soloist and wah wah guitar performed by A-list musicians in Hollywood.

“The idea for DAH3 was to continue the approach set in DAH1 and DAH2 as though I was a film composer writing in that period,” says Schyman. “Of course, wah wah guitar is slathered throughout because it was so ubiquitous and influential. Personally, this is my favorite of the three DAH scores. I love this style of music!”
