The Recording Company has published this year’s nominationy for the Grammy awards. This year is the first time that prices will be awarded in the new category of best video game soundtrack. So far, the only video game title to win a Grammy is Christopher Tin’s “Baba Yetu”, the Civ4 main theme, and the related album “Calling All Dawns”.
Maybe surprising, maybe not, the soundtrack for “Old World” is in this year’s nominee list (official announcement; article by IGN).
In addition to this, the new album by Christopher Tin, “The Lost Birds“, is nominated as best classical compendium.
We are very happy to hear these news, and would like to congratulate the team!
