Lennie Moore's score for the videogame Outcast helped pave the way for what is now a standard occurrence in the gaming industry -- the full orchestral score. Moore recorded his mammoth effort in Russia with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra with film music favorite William T. Stromberg conducting. The result is not unsurprisingly Soviet in sound, with the large mixed chorus evoking the lumbering might of Basil Poledouris' The Hunt For Red October. However Moore's Outcast is more varied, mixing ethereal chorale with exotic percussion and a rollicking main theme.
Available only through purchasing the game in 1999, this is a limited promotional release produced by Infogrames. The score has been available for download from the game's official site for years, but this is perhaps the best sounding free version on the internet. Highly recommended download. Enjoy!
