A catchy folk soundtrack by BAFTA-nominated composer Ryan Ike tells the history of the United States and explores its varied culture through music.
Materia Collective is thrilled to release the infectious folk soundtrack to Where the Water Tastes Like Wine composed by Ryan Ike. Just as in the game, listeners will enjoy folklore from across the United States spanning over a century of history through the varied and authentic soundtrack that touches on everything from blues and swing to patriotic marches and tunes inspired by the indigenous peoples of the Americas. Where The Water Tastes Like Wine Original Game Soundtrack is now available wherever digital music is sold:
“Working on this soundtrack has been a dream come true for a lot of reasons,” notes composer Ryan Ike. “I’ve always been really interested in how music can change and take on a life of its own as people share it, and getting to explore that idea with WTWTLW’s world map theme (which shifts styles and influences depending on where you are in the country) was awesome. I’m also a big fan of how people from different backgrounds can come together to form one musical culture. I think American Folk music is one of the best examples of that, and writing this soundtrack meant I got to work with a ton of amazing performers from all over the country, including many I’ve been wanting an excuse to hire for a long time. Working on this game really crossed a lot of stuff off my musical bucket list!”
