This new video released by Naughty Dog features Gustavo Santaolalla, the Academy Award winning composer who created the score for The Last of Us.

Santaolalla is an Argentinian composer known for his work on such critically acclaimed films as The Insider and 21 Grams. He is a two-time Academy Award winner for his soundtracks to the films Brokeback Mountain and Babel.

The Last of Us is Santaolalla's first video game project, but as you'll see, he's lending the game an eerie, emotional vibe with a mix of synthesizers, classical, and traditional Latin American instruments.
