The score to Sony Playstation God of War III has been nominated for the 2010 Hollywood Music In Media Award. I share the nomination with the rest of the team of Cris Velasco, Mike Reagan, Gerard Marino, and Ron Fish. All terrific composers. It was fun and a real creative challange. I created about 25 minutes of original material, and as the developers completed the game, tracks were remixed and rearranged into a number of variations.
You can hear some of my favorite tracks here.
We recorded the score last fall at Lucas Film’s Skywalker Ranch in northern California. It’s an amazing facility. State of the art in a rustic natural setting. The staff there is the best I’ve worked with, including head engineer Leslie Ann Jones (daughter of the brilliant band leader Spike Jones). The team from Sony ran things with amazing precision and polish.
