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).
