343 Industries announces new composer for the Halo Franchise
By: Pat Olsen
With the massively popular Halo franchise departing from its’ old studio Bungie, Inc., many of the old jobs from the former developer were left unfilled.
Recent announcements from the Microsoft-owned Halo page puts Neil Davidge at the helm for the new trilogy’s music.
Regarding the musical style and direction planned, Mr. Davidge had this to say: “Music has always been at the heart of what makes Halo so captivating and iconic. With Halo 4, we want to build upon the franchise’s amazing legacy and create a score that captures the awe and wonder of the Halo universe, and reinforces the deeper and more emotionally impactful journey Master Chief will embark on.”
Employing an ensemble of 16 people chosen by Davidge himself, the group is composed of Tenors and Basses in a male choir, 10 female Bulgarian vocalists, a entire 50-piece orchestra, and a myriad of other performers are just a few things that will be used to create the hopefully iconic music for Halo 4.
Mr. Davidge has contributed music for Clash of the Titans, Trouble the Water, and helped co-create and produce for the group Massive Attack.
