Electronic musicians, gamers, and fans of the Asian Underground movement will be pleased to hear that noted composer/producer Nitin Sawhney has composed the soundtrack for the anticipated PS3 title ‘Heavenly Sword’. Sawhney is best known for his Mercury Prize-winning album ‘Beyond Skin’, his production of the Cirque du Soleil soundtrack for ‘Varekei’, and his recent score to the Mira Nair film ‘The Namesake’.

Kotaku gives us a video interview, here, while Music4Games gives us a written one here.

    I loved Nitin's work in Varekai, but the music to Heavenly Sword sounds absolutely amazing! Thanks for posting this; I didn't even know he was involved in the project.

    Been a fan of Nitin Sawhney since 'Beyond Skin' — an incredible album that will stand the test of time, because in many ways it's about timelessness. And the music is up to par. Now I want to buy a PS3 just so I can play that game and hear the music!
