Los Angeles (May 13, 2004)–Composer Inon Zur recently recorded the original music soundtrack for Men Of Valor, the upcoming historical first-person shooter developed by 2015 and published by Vivendi Universal Games (VU Games), on the Eastwood Scoring Stage, Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank. Zur’s game credits include SOCOM II: U.S. Navy Seals and Shadow Ops: Red Mercury.
John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer are just a few of the composers that have scored blockbuster films including The Matrix, Harry Potter, and Jaws at this famous studio. And now, perennial award nominated composer Zur has conducted and recorded his score for the Men Of Valor videogame on this, one of Hollywood’s biggest, scoring stages.
VU games director of sound Christian Johnson said, “This outstanding orchestra and auspicious soundstage was the perfect complement to Inon’s thoughtful, moving score.”
Debbie Datz-Pyle, music contractor for Elfman and Zur, attested, “It is a great pleasure to work with a quality composer such as Inon Zur. This is a very exciting opportunity to bring the great Los Angeles musicians working on major feature films into the gaming world.”
Men Of Valor is an historical action experience that portrays infantry combat during the Vietnam War. Combining the latest Unreal technology with the gameplay expertise of 2015 (developers of Medal of Honor: Allied Assault), Men Of Valor will ship to stores in North America in October 2004.
Men Of Valor executive producer Stephen Wickes added, “I was blown away by the performance and can’t wait to share this music with the world when Men Of Valor ships this October.”
Zur composes and produces music for film, television and video games. In February 2004, Zur’s main theme for SOCOM II: U.S. Navy Seals was honored as finalist for Best Original Instrumental Song in the Annual Game Audio Network Guild (GANG) Awards.
