Robert Holmes composes main song for Cognition

Entitled “The Taking”, Robert Holmes has delivered a beautiful composition that gels greatly to Austin Haynes’ soundtrack to the game. The main vocals are performed by the very talented and beautiful Raleigh Holmes, Robert’s own daughter, who also plays the main role of Erica Reed in the game.

The song is very much like in the vein of Robert’s band, “The Scarlet Furies“, for which Raleigh acts as the lead singer. It’s very reminiscent of some of the previous songs by the band, and it has a vibe that reminds me of some of the best pieces from Natalie Merchant.

Previously, Robert composed the music to Jane Jensen’s acclaimed Gabriel Knight and Gray Matter games.

This track will definitely be part of the soundtrack of the game, for which we are planning a full release, probably closer to the release of the final episode of the game.

Have a listen to a sample!
