Caleb Slain’s latest work takes a look inside the exciting world of music composition – only this music composition isn’t for anything ordinary. “Frequencies – The Music of League of Legends” explores Riot Games’ epic process of scoring orchestral music for their popular video game League of Legends. In this documentary, Caleb uncovers the passion, collaboration, and pursuit of creative harmony that the company strives to achieve in this process.
League of Legends is a multiplayer online video game that in 2012 became the most played PC game in North America and Europe. In the game, music functions in a similar way that it does in film – it provides a more immersive experience and heightens emotion. League of Legends, centered around multiplayer gameplay, doesn’t utilize a typical storyline. Music is essential to fleshing out preloaded characters and creating a more immersive experience for the player. Caleb lends his storytelling skills to Riot Games in this compelling piece, effortlessly highlighting the art, craft, and dedicated people behind the scenes.
