Jim ses­sions

EDGE - - HYPE -

While Be­low is yet another de­par­ture for a rest­less, gen­re­hop­ping stu­dio, some mea­sure of con­ti­nu­ity comes from Jim Guthrie, the pro­lific Toronto mu­si­cian who scored Swords &

Sworcery and Capy’s con­tri­bu­tion to Vita/ PS3 mu­si­cal puz­zler

Sound Shapes. “Ev­ery cou­ple of weeks, Kris [Piotrowski, Capy cre­ative di­rec­tor] will take the af­ter­noon and go to Jim’s stu­dio,” Vella says. “It’s this awe­some lit­tle shed in his back yard – he has this amaz­ing, lush gar­den. They’ll just sit there – Kris plays the game and Jim will play some mu­sic. It’s re­ally helped us fig­ure out

Be­low’s aes­thetic: we make some­thing, Jim makes some­thing, we put the two to­gether and re­alise what needs to change – colours, or vi­su­als, or cues. He’s a mae­stro.”
