Jesper Kyd scores Assassin’s Creed Revelations

Following his critically acclaimed music for Assassin’s Creed, Assassin’s Creed II and Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, British Academy award-winning composer Jesper Kyd has written and produced the original score for Assassin’s Creed® Revelations, the fourth installment in Ubisoft’s immensely popular video game franchise, alongside music composed by Lorne Balfe.

To reflect the story’s multicultural setting of 16th Century Constantinople, Jesper Kyd has crafted a rich and evocative hybrid music score drawing on Greek, Renaissance and Middle-Eastern instrumentation, while combining his emotional melodic writing and acoustic/electronic styles associated with the series. Assassin’s Creed Revelations will be available on November 15, 2011 for Xbox 360®, PLAYSTATION®3 and PC.

In Assassin’s Creed Revelations, master assassin Ezio Auditore walks in the footsteps of the legendary mentor Altaïr, on a journey of discovery and revelation. It is a perilous path - one that will take Ezio to Constantinople, the heart of the Ottoman Empire, where a growing army of Templars threatens to destabilize the region.

Expanding upon his signature music styles for the Assassin’s Creed series, composer Jesper Kyd immerses players in Revelations with a vibrant and exotic action-driven score that employs Greek and other ethnic musical influences to reflect the cultural diversity of Constantinople. The soundtrack is planned for release with the game.

Jesper Kyd’s previous scores for the Assassin’s Creed franchise have received top honors for Best Original Music including the Gold Spirit Awards, Hollywood Music In Media Awards, GameSpot.com Readers’ Choice, GameSpy.com Editors’ Choice, Game Audio Network Guild Awards as well as nominations from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences, International Film Music Critics Association, IGN.com, G4 TV and Spike TV VGAs for Best Original Soundtrack.

Developed and led by Ubisoft Montreal with the support and expertise of Ubisoft studios Annecy, Massive Entertainment, Quebec, Singapore and Bucharest, Assassin’s Creed Revelations presents the most immersive experience available in the series to date and the culmination of Ezio’s adventure.

Award-winning Danish composer Jesper Kyd has created some of the most memorable soundtracks in genre entertainment. Internationally renowned for composing the unique, signature music soundtracks for multi-million selling franchises ASSASSIN’S CREED and HITMAN, Kyd’s compelling and distinctive scores feature a diverse array of orchestra, choir, acoustic manipulations and electronic soundscapes, immersing audiences with emotional depth often described by critics as ’rousing,’ ’surreal’ and ’beautiful.’ In film and television Kyd has composed for a wide variety of projects and different styles including the upcoming live action TV series HEAVY METAL aka Métal Hurlant (United Humanoids) based on the French graphic novels by legendary comic book artist Jean "Moebius" Giraud; THE RESISTANCE action sci-fi series (SyFy) produced by Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures and Starz Media; STAUNTON HILL (Anchor Bay Entertainment), the full-length horror / thriller directed by Cameron Romero, son of George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead); and A PERFECT SOLDIER, the powerful real-life drama documenting the story of Aki Ra - a former child soldier trained by the Communist regime Khmer Rouge in Cambodia who dedicates his life to humanitarian efforts and removing the landmines that still inflict his country. Kyd is currently scoring the upcoming HEAVY METAL TV series and Cameron Romero’s next film, RADICAL. He resides in Burbank, California and is represented by The Gorfaine-Schwartz Agency.
