Well that's bad for the composer of that music. I liked it. Shame he can't use it elsewhere, but I guess that's contracts for you.

Now I can still look forward to the trailer. I'm sure whatever music they've used will fit perfectly to the clips.

Say what? If he writes the music because they asked him to, because they're going to use it in their game, they pay him to write this music. They own it. That's how it works.

He didn't just write that piece cause he felt like it, with Crystal to come along and claim it afterwards, it was written for something specific, and whether they use it or not is their choice, as with the soundtrack of any game or movie.

Can't say i feel sorry for this situation since i didn't liked his music (from what little i heard of it) but his reply makes him look like a great guy which is the most important trait for a professional in an industry which is full of overblown egos.Best of luck in his future endeavours.

I never saw all the hype over his music anyway, we heard like a 30 second snippit of two songs that sounded OK. Hopefully if they have decided to do away with it, it's because the trailer went in a different direction than they though it would and the tone no longer suits that music. Personally I'm hoping for something with a little more kick to it than what we heard in the snippet, something to rival AOD which LAU certainly didn't, although TRU was one of the best in my opinion.

This is an excerpt of the music he wrote for the trailer, heard in the GameInformer podcast way back in December 2010, which we may or may not hear tonight:
The 'asset' concerned was the Making of... video that showed the cover being made was it not? The excerpt of the music you linked to features in the Making Of... video as well.

They hired him to do the music for them, so it is theirs to use or not use however they want. I just assumed Alex was doing the music for only the cover trailer. If he did other music we might get that yet with other documentary style clips.

Well since I put a whole lot of time into writing an interview and didn't quite get one, would anyone like to read the questions?

No, if you see Stewart's tweet it's in reply to a question specifically about the trailer

AD probably did the music in that video too though

Shame I loved what I heard oh well hopefully they got David Julyan istead

I just hope the trailer shares a similar tone I really don't want anything like the TRU in game soundtrack. . or anything like the TRU teaser trailer or anything else out of CD games it just wouldn't work.
