Syberia 3 (Official Soundtrack) by Inon Zur
ALSO AVAILABLE: VINYL SIGNED BY COMPOSER INON ZUR!!!
Black Screen Records and publisher Microïds have teamed up to release the incredible soundtrack to the third installment of the award-winning video game series Syberia by three-time BAFTA nominated composer Inon Zur (Syberia 2, Fallout 3 & 4, Dragon Age 1 & 2, Prince of Persia) digitally worldwide, followed by a limited edition vinyl release - which will also include the full Syberia 2 soundtrack - on 180g audiophile double vinyl later this November/December.
Inon’s score combines traditional Eastern European sounds (accordion, mandolin), a blend of Tuvan and Peruvian throat singing, primitive percussion and mechanical, metallic sound elements (steam organ) with orchestral performances by The City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and emotional, dynamic, raw, tribal singing performed by Aeralie Brighton.
“For Syberia 3 I was inspired by the game’s heroic personal story about a woman [Kate Walker] from New York who sacrifices her well-being to fight for the Youkol tribe against dark eastern European forces. The musical score blends traditional orchestra with eastern European sounds to reflect this unusual, unique story, and Benoit Sokal’s signature artistic vision.” -

About the game
Syberia 3 is developed by Koalabs Studio and will be available April 20th in Europe and April 25th in North America on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC / Mac. The first installment of the Syberia saga, released in 2002, was hailed as an international success. The second chapter, also became critically acclaimed globally when it was released two years later. After a wait of over a decade, Benoit Sokal and publisher Microïds have joined forces again to offer players a brand-new Kate Walker adventure. Impersonating Kate Walker, players will benefit from a brand new way to freely explore striking landscapes and circumvent their mysteries and puzzles in ways they have not experienced before. The story begins when Kate is found left for dead on a shore by the Youkol tribe, a nomadic people caring for their snow ostriches during migration. Trapped, prisoners in the city of Valsembor, they will have to find together a way to continue their journey in a chase against their enemies and unexpected challenges. While at the same time, Kate’s past is catching up with her.
“Renowned composer Inon Zur (whose background includes the 3D Fallout games, Dragon Age series, and even Syberia 2) delivers incredibly rich and memorable music. The beating percussion uplifts a sharp orchestra that exudes infectious melodies and harmonies, driving home the feeling of charting unknown territory in remote parts of Eastern Europe. I even found myself unconsciously humming these songs outside of the game. The great music coincides with a cold and grim, yet captivating atmosphere, creating a world that should be lived in.”
“Composer Inon Zur returns for the soundtrack that contains beautiful vocals ranging from the chilling singing of Aeralie Brighton to the eerie chanting of tribal voices...evokes the grand sound you’d find in old Russian symphonies or a spiritual etherealness. And it’s awesome to hear some tracks build with more layers as you get closer to solving key puzzles.”
“Wonderful soundtrack...Its soothing pieces guide the player through their journey and sets tranquil, lonesome and sinister moods depending on the situation. It truly fits the strange, surreal world of Syberia.”

“Inon Zur pulls the strings of a soundtrack that already feels as immersive as it is inspired.”
