Inon Zur Scores Crysis

Award-winning composer creates epic „alien“ score for ground-breaking first person shooter video game

Crysis PC-Version DVD CoverLos Angeles, CA – August 10th, 2007 – Film, television and video game composer Inon Zur has created the original musical score for Crysis the next-generation PC first-person shooter developed by Crytek and published by Electronic Arts.

Renowned for composing emotionally dynamic orchestral music, Zur was commissioned by Crytek to produce a modern cinematic score that heightens the impact of the dramatic storyline, realistic environments and highly-evolved gameplay.

„Inon’s ability to describe a complex situation through music is uncanny,“ said Crytek Audio Director Joseph Zajonc. „He grasps human interaction and internal conflict and delivers musical support for these scenarios with sensitivity and assuredness in his compositions. Inon’s sense of orchestration and the sound palette he has developed for this title are integral to the feel and identity of Crysis.“

The score was recorded with the acclaimed Northwest Sinfonia Orchestra in Seattle. Zur’s compositions feature sweeping themes, immersive setup pieces, intense action music, and „otherworldly“ musical soundscapes performed by the orchestra to invoke the alien influences in the game.

Joseph Zajonc adds, „Inon has such an enthusiasm for composing, it’s a joy to work with him. He really wants to provide exactly the right material for a given game moment, often coming up with an approach that surprises.“

Zur’s diverse repertoire of projects includes Hollywood film trailers, network television productions, CGI movies, blockbuster video games and symphony concerts. Most recently Zur composed the music for CBS‘ „Ghost Whisperer: The Other Side“ TV webisode series directed by Claudio Faeh (Hollow Man 2, Starship Troopers 3).

Holidays !!!

Urlaub 2007Ahh – finally Holidays !!!

You know what? I really need that free time. The last weeks we had a hell at work with a lot of preparations for some customers and their attendance at the IFA 2007 from August 31 – September 5, 2007. IFA is one of the world’s largest consumer electronics trade shows with 1,049 exhibitors and 212,494 visitors in the last year 2006. A lot of catalogues, business cards for representatives, flyers and other advertising material had to be finished, working overtime …

But now i am going on holiday and have a lot of fun ;). So for the next two weeks nothing much will happen for me on my own fan sites as well as on Jamendo and all the other communities i am a regular visitor to. Some friends will keep an eye on my sites during my absence and i hope they will manage to implement some long time scheduled additional features to the sites.

Anyway, now „free time“ is king for me and i wish you a good time, too 🙂 !!

Take care 🙂
