[Video] Mirror’s Edge & M83’s Before The Dawn Heals Us | Alternate Soundtrack | Soundtrack | Scoop.it

Video game music can be great, but sometimes it’s fun to pair your wine with some different cheese. In Alternate Soundtrack, Derrick Sanskrit matches a video game with an album that enhances the experience.

French electronic duo M83 made a few very risky decisions when they split ways in 2003. After marginal success in Europe from their first two albums, Nicolas Fromageau left to form Team Ghost—a shoegaze outfit heavily influenced by My Bloody Valentine and Joy Division— while Anthony Gonzalez kept the M83 name, wanting to make sweeping cinematic scores instead of the humanistic electronic garage rock they’d become known for.
