Gamers, time to tune those eardrums! Ubisoft has just unleashed the first single for their highly anticipated title, Assassin’s Creed Mirage. The track, aptly named “MIRAGE THEME,” is crafted by none other than Brendan Angelides, a maestro you might recognize from shows like Billions and 13 Reasons Why.
Brendan Angelides Melds Musical Worlds
So what’s the 411 on the music for Assassin’s Creed Mirage? Brendan Angelides is set to integrate his unique electronic vibes into the adventure, which takes place in ninth-century Baghdad. He’s not going it alone, though. Partnering up with the New York Arabic Orchestra and Tunisian artist Emel Mathlouthi, the music aims to immerate gamers in an environment where history, gameplay, and culture are inseparable.
Inspired by Real World Events
Don’t sleep on this one; the music takes cues from Emel Mathlouthi’s protest song that made waves during the Arab Spring. What’s Brendan’s angle? He’s fusing a narrative experience with auditory magic to create a seamless in-game experience.
What’s Next on the Playlist?
If “MIRAGE THEME” has you buzzing, mark your calendar for October 6th. That’s when the full Assassin’s Creed Mirage soundtrack drops, following the game’s release.
A Note from the Composer
Brendan Angelides sums it up: “The main theme is a window into the entire story of Mirage and Basim’s journey. The goal was to capture a story of transformation by blending old world instrumentation with new world tech. I wanted to feel the sand, the wind, the ever-present danger. Layth Sidiq was brought in to capture the essence of Basim through his vocals and masterful violin work.”
Ubisoft’s “MIRAGE THEME” for Assassin’s Creed Mirage is out, and it’s a banger. Brendan Angelides collaborates with musicians connected to the game’s ninth-century Baghdad setting, delivering a fresh sonic take on the Assassin’s Creed universe. Full soundtrack coming October 6th.
