The latest Soundworks Collection video features game music composer Jesper Kyd.
Kyd first started writing music for visual media in the European ‘demoscene’. At 19 he became part owner of a video game company which later evolved into IO Interactive, the studio behind the Hitman series and Freedom Fighters.
Kyd’s immersive soundtracks feature a mix of styles, ranging from the orchestral/electronic hybrid scores for the HITMAN series and anthemic choral score for Freedom Fighters to the post-apocalyptic / sci-fi themes of the Borderlands series. And his iconic themes continue to be heard in the Assassin’s Creed video game series.
