We are pleased to announce that Old World’s soundtrack by composer Christopher Tin has been nominated for a Grammy award! The nomination is in the category of “Best Score Soundtrack for Video Games and Other Interactive Media.”
Although this is the first year for the new category, it is not the first time Christopher Tin has been nominated for a Grammy award for a game soundtrack. In fact, his song “Baba Yetu” from the Civilization IV soundtrack, another collaboration with longtime friend and Mohawk Design Director Soren Johnson, was the first piece of video game music to win a Grammy award in 2011. Tin won two Grammys that year for his album “Calling All Dawns”. In addition to his Old World nomination, Christopher Tin’s album “The Lost Birds” is nominated for “Best Classical Compendium” for the 2023 awards.
Watch the video for “I lift My Eyes”, featuring Abeer Nehme and the Angel City Chorale, directed by Tayo Amos:
