Tobin to compose Splinter Cell Chaos Theory Soundtrack.
Ubisoft today announced that recording artist Amon Tobin is composing the original soundtrack for Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, scheduled to ship for PC and the Xbox video game system from Microsoft for Holiday 2004.
Known for his vanguard production and composition work, Tobin uses an eclectic array of sounds, both electronic and organic, to create unique sonic landscapes, and excels at conjuring diverse and distinctive musical atmospheres that range from playful to menacing.
Tobin’s original score will be heard throughout Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Chaos Theory; he and label Ninja Tune will also be releasing a companion soundtrack CD featuring extended and re-mastered versions of the themes from the game to coincide with the release of the game this year, with a limited collectors edition mixed in 5.1 surround sound planned for release in spring 2005.
“It quickly became clear that Ubisoft was interested in music that completely intertwined with the overall fabric of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Chaos Theory to an extent that has not been heard before in video games – the development team members are true perfectionists, and we labored meticulously over every aspect of the sound design,” said Tobin. “No concessions were made that would compromise the integrity of the soundtrack, and that’s rare in a project of this scale.”
