WildStar composer Jeff Kurtenacker answers fan questions about the game’s soundtrack


WildStar is dead and gone, but we will always have the soundtrack, which is all over YouTube for those who perhaps missed out on some of MMO gaming’s best tunes. Earlier in the month, that soundtrack’s composer Jeff Kurtenacker asked fans for questions about the game’s score, and reportedly a whole lot of folks responded, so we now have the first video of Kurtenacker answering those questions.

According to the opening of the video, Kurtenacker has about 43 questions lined up for answering, so we’re likely in for a delightfully lengthy series of videos. The first episode provides some insight into the composer’s influences, what song didn’t make it into the game, as well as his thoughts and feelings about some tracks like Two Pistols and an Open Frontier and Cutely Grotesque and Certifiably Insane.

As alluded to before, there’s very likely going to be more videos like this — a lot more — so fans of WildStar’s music would probably want to keep eyes on Kurtenacker’s YouTube channel. For now, the first JK Q&A is below, and for more analysis and thoughts on WildStar’s music, be sure to check out our Jukebox Heroes column for the OST’s top tracks.

I’ve said this on here before, but that soundtrack is my favorite in any game ever. It’s about 50% of why i enjoyed WS, it made the game.

This guy should be hired by Activision Blizzard or CCP or Standing Stone Games or some other surviving MMO company like NCsoft. Jeff’s that good at his musical art.

That Chua theme was an especial favorite. I found it the first time on my Drakken warrior when questing in the early areas and later looked it up on Youtube. I never did play this game much but the music was indeed excellent.
