Phoning Home



"…The music really takes the cake. While many games billing themselves as survival or exploration games opt for silence to create mood, [Phoning Home developer] ION LANDS chose an orchestral set of tracks that are both cinematic and haunting. If you isolate the music and close your eyes, you could swear that you'd left the Hobbit trilogy playing on your system, or perhaps this year's most lauded European picture (undoubtedly something equal parts moving and depressing). All this to say that the soundtrack is beautiful and delicate, and also reactive--it changes with the mood of game events, meaning that battle is made tenser by driving rhythms, while peaceful landscape-scouring is met with subtle strums." - Nathan Wyckoff, Keen Gamer

"The soundtrack is riveting and perfectly suited to the atmosphere, with the chittering, churning, billowing sounds of a living world around them." - Lori May, OpNoobs

"The sound design, music, and voice acting are done extremely well.  Everything about Phoning Home feels much more polished than your average indie game, but the voice acting and music are easily the highlights of the aesthetic….The music fits the feeling of the game, of being lost on a strange planet far from home.  It’s immediately the one area that you can just feel that the developers put a huge emphasis on and it comes off almost perfect.  The game feels very atmospheric thanks to the soundtrack." - Judgman, Gaming Shogun

"Phoning Home should praise itself for a beautiful soundtrack…." - James Holdsworth, Survivethis

"The execution of the soundtrack is superb and makes a big impact on the feel. While much of the gameplay is serene and slow, there is a steady tension level that is created, and the mood is controlled throughout by the music." - DPB, Squackle

"Sound and Music - 9/10" - Evan Saunders, Fortress of Solitude

"Music and sounds are…on top-level. Phoning Home’s soundtrack is minimalistic but memorable and melodic. Music provides the needed atmosphere, it sounds like cold space, at the same time opened for adventure." - Rodion Schizmin, Geeksnack

About Caleb


Caleb Blood is a prolific music composer for film, television, commercial and video game projects. In addition to working with respected game developers and filmmakers, Caleb has provided music for high-profile clients including TLC, BMW, Lifetime TV, Salesforce, and H&M. He has also worked closely with noted feature-film composer Christian Davis (Grown Ups, Just Go With It, and The Zookeeper).

Caleb discovered his passion for music at a very young age. He eventually grew into a multi-genre, multi-instrumentalist. His skills on the keyboard, guitar, trumpet, and voice have received numerous special accolades. He began his professional career as a pop singer/songwriter/producer and quickly fell in love with the world of instrumental composing. Drawing on his background in pop music, Caleb specializes in hybrid composing — blending acoustic and orchestral elements with electronic elements. His hybrid scoring style creates music that can sound anywhere from gnarly to gorgeous, or quirky to frightening.

Some of Caleb’s greatest influences include Hans Zimmer, Brian Tyler, Junkie XL, and Austin Wintory. Others he draws inspiration from include John Powell, Henry Jackman, Two Steps from Hell, Johann Johannsson, and anything/anyone that makes music.

In addition to being an accomplished composer and songwriter, Caleb is an experienced orchestrator, producer and MIDI sequencer.

Caleb is originally from San Francisco, CA and currently works out of his studio in Los Angeles, CA where he lives with his wife, Michele.
