Grand Theft Auto V is the first game in the series to use an original score. Music supervisor Ivan Pavlovich commented that creating the score was “daunting” because it would be unprecedented for a Grand Theft Auto game. Like most previous games in the series, Grand Theft Auto V also contains licensed music tracks provided by an in-game radio.
Pavlovich said the team did not want the original music to detract from the use of licensed music, but rather to accompany it. To work on the score, Rockstar engaged The Alchemist, Oh No and Tangerine Dream with Woody Jackson, who had collaborated with the team on Red Dead Redemption, L.A. Noire (2011) and Max Payne 3.
In collaboration with each other, the team of producers composed twenty hours of music which scores the game’s missions. In addition, music plays dynamically throughout the game in both the single-player and multiplayer modes.
Pavlovich felt that at times, Rockstar gave the team missions to score but that some of the team’s music composed for no specific purpose influenced other missions and provided inspiration for further score development.
He described a “stem-based” system that was used to make the music fit dynamic factors in the game; after a piece of music was assigned to a particular mission, the team composed music to underscore outcomes the player could make after completing it.
