Teardown for PS5 joins PlayStation Plus Extra catalog
Teardown invites players to plan the perfect heist using creative problem solving, brute force, and destructible objects in the environment. The voxel demolition sandbox, published on consoles by Saber Interactive, features original music written and performed by Douglas Holmquist of Malmo, Sweden.
"On April 22nd 2022 we had a release party for Teardown on the top floor of Turning Torso in Malmö," the composer writes, via his YouTube channel. "I put a band together for the event. The Credits from Teardown is a variation of the Teardown Theme, and we expanded the song with a little help from our amazing saxophone players."
The two-volume score can be purchased through the musician's Bandcamp page, alongside "Time Campers" and "Art Vandals" downloadable contents soundtracks. Mastering for the albums is by Håkan Åkesson at Nutid Studio, with artwork by John Kearney. Excerpts and concept sketches are streaming on SoundCloud.
Verified for use with the Steam Deck, Teardown is also available for Xbox Series X|S and Windows through Steam.

Writing custom music for a trailer narrated by Owen Wilson was a career highlight for sure. I got the masterful sax/bass clarinet player Andreas Sjögren to record solo phrases throughout, and then edited them once the VO was set. Top notch drumming by Andreas Baw as per usual. https://t.co/FBu46tWpK7— Douglas Holmquist (@dawglr) November 16, 2023
