Victoria 3: Melodies for the Masses

  • Developer: Paradox Development Studio
  • Publisher: Paradox Interactive
  • Release: 2023
  • Role: Music Composition

The age of industrialization is the age of transformation, when millions of pastoral workers relocated to factories; a time when the center of national potential moved from the countryside to the cities.
Inspired by the romantic yearnings for those simpler days of working on the land. This nearly hour long collection of original music is a concert honoring the daily struggles and ambitions of the common people. (Steam)

About the Project

Expanding on our music for the Victoria 3 main game we were asked to provide the main content for the first music pack for Victoria 3. Our focus lied on the daily life of the common people during the Victorian Era. Melancholy meets ambition while facing disruptive change.

To blend smoothly into the music we have already written for Victoria 3 we used similar instrumentation and arrangements, while extending the overall amount of musicians quite a lot. Therefore this music pack features not only string quartet and piano, but also symphonic music recorded with a full 70 piece orchestra all at once.

The recordings took place in the renowned Smecky Music Studios in Prague with the FILMharmonic Orchestra.
