Spellborn International announces that Jesper Kyd has created the original music score for the massive multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) The Chronicles of Spellborn. Kyd’s score for Spellborn is an inspired blend of organic and ethereal musical landscapes embroidered with theatrical orchestrations that and fully immerses players in the post-apocalyptic dark fantasy world of Spellborn.
“We knew a mix of diverse musical textures would better serve our game than simply using an orchestra, so we approached Jesper Kyd, who is renowned for his versatility as well as producing scores that go beyond the traditional mold,” explains Matthew Florianz, sound designer for The Chronicles of Spellborn. “Jesper has fashioned the kind of grandeur usually associated with the cinematic sound of an orchestra, though he only used analog sounds and solo instruments, and delivers a deeply emotional impact with a minimum of bombast. His elaborate, cerebral and intuitive treatment was exactly what we were looking for.”
“Jesper Kyd is a composer with the rare combination of having a recognizable personal style, a good feel for what speaks to a mass audience and the ability to translate mood and emotion into music,” says Spellborn’s marketing manager, Barry Hoffman.
