Inon Zuhr talks about inspirations for Starfield music

Composer Inon Zuhr, who has worked on Fallout, Dragon Age, and other famous games, talks about inspirations for Starfield music.According to Zuhr, he was first inspired by the work of John Williams (Star Wars, Schindler's List) and Jerry Goldsmith (Alien, The Mummy).
After those, he turned to Debussy, Ravel, Prokofiev and other classical composers.Then his attention was drawn to works using synthesizer, such as the soundtrack to \"Blade Runner.
\"He also listened to composer John Cage to borrow \"elements of minimalism that he uses in his music.
\"And after all that I just thought about how I want to hear the sound of the universe - how I can bring all these elements together and give them the unique Starfield sound.\" Inon ZurZur, along with audio direction director Mark Lampert, compiled a list of the compositions that inspired Starfield: Zur's choices: the title theme from the Survivor soundtrack (Ryuichi Sakamoto), Johann Johannsson, John Cage's Ocean of Sounds and Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings; Lampert's choices Einstürzende Neubauten, Kronos Quartet (from the 1995 film \"The Clash\"), the soundtracks to Fallout 76 and Fallout 76: Wastelanders, True Widow, Jason Moran, Steve Moore's Saturnalia and the soundtrack to Vangelis' Blade Runner.
