On the PlayStation Blog today, Sony has offered all sorts of information on the making of The Last Guardian’s soundtrack. The game’s music was composed by Takeshi Furukawa and performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, Trinity Boys Choir, and London Voices. In addition to a three minute video going over the tracks’ creation, information on acquiring and listening to the score apart from the game was made available.
