Every sound in Rez such as the sound effects of the laser beam or the sound of locking on to a target is programmed to instantly synchronize with the background music. Even if the player mistakenly pushes a button, that sound will also join the other sounds produced by the game in perfect harmony.
All this will happen by simply controlling the player character. The music will dramatically change in tune and rhythms all during the game, which is just like remixing the music in your original way every time you play Rez. In order to further this effect we have asked various artists of club music to join the production of Rez.
