LOS ANGELES - Californer -- Composer Thomas Parisch will be scoring the upcoming co-op action video game, Biped from NExT Studios. NExT Studios is the developer behind the hit game, Bladed Fury.  Biped will be released March 27, 2020 on Steam followed by Sony PS4, Nintendo Switch and WeGame later this year. Some of Parisch's other credits include Capcom's Resident Evil 6, NExT Studios' Iris Fall, Honor of Kings, Iron Knight, Moonlight Blade and The Legend of Xuan Yuan, all by Tencent. Also performing on the Biped score is flutist Pedro Eustache.

When asked about scoring the game Parisch says, "It was pure joy to musically accompany those charming robots on their journey. Everything from game play to artwork is very playful and lighthearted so I tried a similar approach to the music using quite a bit of improvisation and open form. Also, since there are two very different worlds meeting, the plugged-in electric robot world and the organic world of planet earth, I drew from eclectic sources ranging from experimental electronic music to jazz and world music. Fusing these styles was challenging at times but allowed for a lot of colors and was simply a lot of fun."
