New York, NY (September 14, 2010)–Award-winning composer and music producer Tom Salta has scored Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X 2, the new video game developed by Ubisoft’s Bucharest studio.
Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X 2 plunges fans into an environment where they can become elite aerial soldiers in control of the world’s most technologically advanced aircraft. Salta’s original score reflects the game’s multinational cinematic story narrative with emotional themes, Russian choral chants, Middle-Eastern instrumentals, combat music, and covert ambience. The hybrid score, written, recorded and produced by Tom Salta, features a live choir, electric guitar and solo acoustic performances with musicians and vocalists from the New York Film Chorale.
“Tom Salta brought a new level of engagement to the story and gameplay of H.A.W.X 2 with this fantastic score,” said Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X 2 narrative and creative director, Edward Douglas. “From large-scale orchestral and choral tracks to unexpected intimate moments, he truly takes the player on an international journey with this soundtrack. I would not want to work on another project without Tom helming the score.”
Tom Salta’s previous credits include the original scores for Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X, the first air-combat game set in the “Tom Clancy’s” video game universe; Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter (nominated for “Best Video Game Score” at the MTV Video Music Awards); the sequel, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2; and the live-action trailer for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier.
Salta will deliver the keynote address for GameSoundCon at Columbia University in New York on October 2-3, 2010. Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X 2 is now available in North America for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation3 computer entertainment system.
