The lights are on
The soundtrack for Sony's downloadable hit Journey received a Grammy nomination for Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media. This is the first video game soundtrack to receive a nomination. The album was composed by Austin Wintory and joins other nominees Hugo, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Dark Knight Rises, The Artist, and The Adventures Of Tintin - The Secret Of The Unicorn.
Last year, Christopher Tin's "Baba Yetu," best known as the opening theme to Sid Meier’s Civilization IV, was the first video game song to receive a Grammy nomination and win.
