If you listened to our latest SoundCast episode, you heard Richard mention that Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe are crafting, at the least, the main theme for the upcoming ASSASSIN'S CREED: REVELATIONS video game. After a tiny bit of research (ok...a quick Google search), I not only found the original contest video with Hans and Lorne, but the official video profile on the winner, Madeline Bell (which you see above.).
She has a nice voice, although not so ground-breakingly different from many of the established vocalists utilized in the world of video-game music. On the other hand, it's nice to see some undiscovered-talent get to participate on a A-list game and perhaps see their career get a lift.
So what do you think of what you've heard or this sort of contest?
