GAMEPLAY: The music of Octopath Traveler

Released in 2018, Octopath Traveler invites players to experience the unique stories of eight main characters.

The game received critical acclaim for its striking visuals and rich original score, both of which were influenced by Japanese role-playing games of the 1980s and 90s.

Today we’ll hear themes from the orchestral soundtrack alongside arrangements for harp, piano, strings and more!

Generous support for the music heard in this program comes from the Robert T. and Ruth Haidt Hughes Memorial Acquisitions Fund. Special thanks to Michael Culler for technical assistance. Production assistance provided by Delia Zaleski. Amanda Sewell is IPR’s Music Director. Keith Brown is the host and executive producer of GAMEPLAY.
