The score for the groundbreaking game GTA 5 was based on the merging of four different artist inputs, a procedure the music supervisor of the game had to follow. Finally it worked perfectly for the game.

It was written and composed by Tangerine Dream, Woody Jackson, The Alchemist and Oh No. Edgar Froese, initially rejected the offer of producing music for a video game. After he was flown to the studio and shown the game, he was impressed by its scale and cinematic nature, and changed his mind.

Tangerine Dream finally produced 62 hours of music. What has been left out, necessarily to give the game a needed sound dress in its abstract form, is the so-called cinematographic score.

Here you will find the music without any other information from the game itself. It’s the pure musical environment composed and played solely by Tangerine Dream. Maybe you will recognize a tune or rhythm here and there, but everything is built in the dress of sequencer lines and melodies as it was composed in the first place.

“Edgar evolved funk into the hip hop then put his [style] over the top of it, and it was another magical moment, … and it just took it all to the highest level."
– Woody Jackson
