Gamespot talks with Jason Hayes

Gamespot interviewed Jason Hayes to discuss his participation as Music Composer behind the soundtracks of World of Warcraft.  If you missed Blizzplanet’s interview with Jason back on 2005 take a look.

Gamespot: How tough was it to create a soundtrack for two factions (Alliance and Horde) and convey it musically?

Jason Hayes: There’s definitely some traditional feelings about Alliance versus the Horde, and what those mean and it’s a little bit tricky because there’s no one faction that’s an evil faction. The Horde has certain feelings that can at times feel a bit darker and at times a bit more barbaric. But recently in the lore of the universe, certainly the Orcs have become in some ways very noble—kind of a quest to redeem themselves and they have a nobility. Defining the regal qualities of some of the Alliance, to the Alliance characteristics and differentiating them from the Horde, is a great challenge.
