The lights are on
During an "Ask Me Anything" session on Reddit, Irrational Games creative director Ken Levine announced that the composer of the scores for the first two BioShock games has returned for the soundtrack of BioShock Infinite.
When asked about the game's score on Reddit, Levine answered, "We're proud to announce that Garry Schyman, composer of BioShock 1 and 2 has returned to the composer's chair for BioShock Infinite. His score is very different from the first two games, yet very much guided by the same aesthetic principles. We were lucky to have him and I can't wait until you get to hear some of his stuff. He's working in a different, sparer style, but it's awesome."
If you want your own copy of the BioShock Infinite score, you'll need to pre-order one of the game's two deluxe collector's editions. You can hear an excerpt of the Schyman's score in the video below.

This is good news.
That's music to my ears! :)
Loved Bioshock 1's score. Glad to see the composer's still on board
Awesome, one of the things that added so much atmoshear to the original and made it so creepy was that I could be walking through these places with "how much is that doggie in the window" playing
YEEEEES! Bioshock has one of the best soundtracks! I'm so happy that the original composer for both Bioshocks is doing Infinite.
I didn't find his contribution to the previous games very memorable. Lets hope he has something more interesting, in store for us this time.
in order to thank everyone, characteristic, novel style, varieties, low price and good quality, and the low sale price. Thank everyone

He always does a fantastic job so glad to hear he's on board.
I'm hoping that he can live up to his excellent job with the first two bioshock games.
Art and music--the two things I love to look at most for video games. This is beautiful.
