Music for Moving Images
"It's hard to put my music into a genre I'd rather prefer to say that my effort is to fit a genre into my music. I like to compose in many different styles and for different genres because I think that's the reason why a composer chooses to score for images and stories: each one is different and needs its specific sound, sometimes it's going to be classical or electronic or experimental or pop music or whatever. I love working with musicians, but I also appreciate the company of computers and synthesizers. I don't define myself a purist so I tend to combine things toghether to really get where I "sonically" aim..."

A Word of Dreams
However, one aspect of the game that truly does stand out is the soundtrack. The soundtrack is lovely and is one of the best elements of the game. Besides the vibrant colors and graphics of course. From haunting pianos to a children’s choir, every piece of music perfectly accents each part of the world you’re asked to explore and all of the elements you encounter. Minor chords strike while you’re exploring caverns. The music swells during particularly dynamic moments. It’s the perfect accompaniment to the surreal atmosphere NERO is going for.
To further accentuate the mood there is the wonderful, sometimes disturbing soundtrack that accompanies us throughout, which in turn sits next to the amazing voice work that articulates the story. Combined this makes for an experience that offers great emotional impact.
With a smooth and soothing soundtrack playing along in the background, the world of NERO is well crafted if not spectacular.

“...one of the defining 'characters' of the film for this reviewer was Riccardo Amorese's score, which creeps and slinks it's way through the background, waiting for the occasional moment to leap into the foreground, lending itself to a few really nice scares.
