'The Da Vinci Code' (ALL) Gets Soundtrack

The Da Vinci Code takes you on a heart-pounding non-stop race through Paris and through time to find the truth and protect a secret that could shake the world. <br><br> In the game, players will be kept on the edge of their seat with suspense, discovery and survival as they guide Robert Langdon and Sophie Neveu on their quest to solve a bizarre murder-mystery and uncover the ultimate treasure protected by an ancient secret society.

Selected by the development team at Collective Studios for her imaginative and innovative approach to choral composition, Winifred was given extensive creative control to produce an original sound for the game inspired by Dan Brown’s novel. Embracing the developer’s ambition, Winifred wrote more than one hundred tracks of dramatic and ethereal music for The Da Vinci Code™ video game that combines classical and liturgical techniques with an aggressive contemporary edge and all the orchestral power of a modern-day thriller. Phillips is a classically trained vocalist as well as a composer, so for the score she personally sang all the voices of a full symphonic chorus including sopranos, altos, tenors and basses.

Cordy Rierson, producer of The Da Vinci Code™ game at Collective Studios, said, “When we heard Winifred’s music, we knew she was the one to bring the video game alive with inspiring and innovative sound. Her music and vocals provided vision and helped shape what is going to be a true one of a kind gaming experience.”

J.P. Walton, audio director for the video game at Collective Studios, added, “Winifred's score is the perfect accompaniment to the game. Her melodic themes and haunting choral arrangements provide a wonderful backdrop to The Da Vinci Code™. Once you hear it you won't believe that she alone performed every part!”
