Jesper Kyd is following up his work on the award-winning soundtracks for IO Interactive’s Hitman series and Freedom Fighters (recipient of GameSpot’s 2003 Best Original Music in a Game Award) with an entirely new original score for Hitman: Contracts. Music composed and produced by Kyd is also featured in the debut movie trailer for Hitman: Contracts.
"The Hitman: Contracts score follows the dark, sinister nature of the third Hitman game", said Kyd, who previously scored Hitman 2: Silent Assassin and its predecessor Hitman: Codename 47. "The soundtrack is a dark and adventurous score mixed with suspenseful electronica elements", he added. Kyd has written more than 90 minutes of original music for Hitman: Contracts.
Jesper Kyd is the leading video game composer whose critically acclaimed music features on best-selling titles for Activision, BioWare, Eidos, Electronic Arts, Konami, Sega, Shiny, and Microsoft. His credits include Freedom Fighters, Hitman 2, Brute Force, Minority Report, MDK2, Messiah and other A list releases.
