Cabin is a first-person horror adventure by RBD Interactive. The game is short but very cinematic, and this is reflected in the length of the soundtrack.
This project was a lot of firsts for me. It was my first horror soundtrack, as well as my first time scoring for something this movie-like. I’d always wanted to try my hand at scare chords, and here was my chance!
The protagonist is all by himself on his adventure and I wanted to lean into his loneliness, so I intentionally made prominent use of solo instruments (especially solo string instruments). There is a lighter track towards the middle of the soundtrack – a bit of a resting point – after which things pick up to a climactic finale.
