343 Industries has just announced the composer ofHalo 4 and... drumroll please... it'sthe award-winning musicianNeil Davidge. Not ringing any bells? Well, he is the co-writer and producer behind the last few albums from Massive Attack. Still nothing? Well maybe you've heard of a film calledClash of the Titans? He's responsible for some of the movie's composition work.
Davidge has sinceexpressedhis excitement in working on the music of Halo 4, making it clear that he is incredibly dedicated to composing a score that lives up to theHalo name. As such, he's carefully selected a16-person male tenor/bass choir in addition to 10 female Bulgarian vocalists. A massive, 50-piece orchestra has been brought on as well.
The composer shared a few words assuring gamers that delivering an emotional experience through the music will be a primary goalin 343 Industries' upcoming sci-fi epic. "Music has always been at the heart of what makes Halo socaptivating and iconic. With Halo 4, we want to build upon thefranchise’s amazing legacy and create a score that captures the aweand wonder of the Halo universe, and reinforces the deeper andmore emotionally impactful journey Master Chief will embark on."
Suffice it to say, Davidge has one heck of a challenge ahead of him. Let's just hope he can deliver on his promise, because in a post Mass Effect 3 world there's no telling what angry fans will do. I can see it now... onlinepetitions circulate the web as disgruntled fans demand that 343i change the soundtrack.
