Sekiro Initial Limited Edition with Mini Soundtrack

The music of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was composed by Yuka Kitamura. She previously worked on the Dark Souls series and Bloodborne.[1]

The team of FromSoftware received core concepts from Hidetaka Miyazaki for the music. Sekiro is set in the Sengoku era (1467 – 1600 CE). This was a very violent period of conflict between warring states in Japan. Sengoku was a time of battlefields and war. It's not a noble knight in shining armor type of battlefield. Yuka explained it's a "really horrible, mud-streaked, blood-soaked battlefield". The major themes are a period of ruin and despair. At the same time there's "ancient Japanese beauty and a sort of time-honored tradition and religious aspects that came into the music" that added breath to the soundtrack.[1]

They thought about the culture of that period such as an esoteric Buddhist approach. They used a lot of live recordings of Japanese instruments such as the Shinobue (Japanese flute) and other instruments such as violins, cellos and vocals. The Taiko, a large Japanese drum, was used as a baseline for composition. She also worked with external composers who had their own unique take on the themes. Yuka thought the setting felt refreshing and restricting. They wanted to make it mostly Japanese flavored with little western influence. While working on the music Yuka found new ways to express herself with the Japanese style. That made it more refreshing and provided stimulus.[1]
