The Walking Dead No Man's Land Mobile Game Features Music By Tuomas Kantelinen

No Man's Land, the official mobile game of AMC's The Walking Dead, currently available on iOS and Google Play, features original music by Tuomas Kantelinen (The Legend Of Hercules, Mongol).

Tuomas Kantelinen studied classical composing in his native Finland and continues to make music for both cinema and concert audiences. Kantelinen has scored orchestral film music for over 30 feature films, including Klaus Haro's awarded Mother Of Mine, Renny Harlin's dark thriller Mindhunters, Harlin's 3D fantasy film The Legend Of Hercules, and Sergei Bodrov's epic Mongol: The Rise Of Genhis Khan, which was shortlisted for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language film in 2007.

"What is cool about the musical world of AMC's The Walking Dead is that it's incredibly sparse and creepy, rather than full-on action, most of the time," said Kantelinen. "The soundscape after the zombie apocalypse is often extreme silence, as there just aren't that many human beings left and they can't function like before. Throughout the franchise, the key to the sound is subtlety, and this sonic landscape works perfectly for creating a game for a mobile platform."

"Writing music and themes for a game is quite different from film scoring, as a lot of repetitive loops are needed, and subtle changes in them up the tension - or, like in the camp, let the player have a moment without that much suspense as she/he is surrounded by other survivors and zombie ambushes aren't as likely," Kantelinen described. "The beauty of this kind of mobile game is that it can be played anywhere - sitting in the bus, on a flight - and the music should support the gaming experience without being too distracting or overpowering."

Stay human and survive in the dangerous world of AMC's The Walking Dead. Trained by Daryl Dixon, your group will fight the walker menace and save other survivors from Terminus to the Prison.
