Multi-award-winning composer Jack Wall (Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Jade Empire, Myst), has written the music for "Call of Duty: Black Ops II" and mastered the soundtrack album at Bernie Grundman Mastering with engineer Patricia Sullivan.
"Call of Duty: Black Ops II" is an adrenaline-fueled, emotional and diverse musical palette that takes the blockbuster series in adventurous new sonic directions. From epic symphonic and hybrid ethnic sounds to classical, folk and unique futuristic treatments, Wall's ambitious score fully immerses players in the game's cinematic experience.
Jack Wall creates a dynamic, narrative-driven score recorded with full symphony orchestra at the world-famous Abbey Road Studios. The score features hybrid orchestral music blended with contemporary and futuristic electronic sounds.
"I created different musical directions for each time period," says Jack Wall, "Orchestral music for the '80s Cold War-era setting, and more of a hybrid sound blending intense electronic drums and synths for the near future setting. I wanted to have the best musicians in the world and these musicians are amazing at what they do. Their interpretation of what I write brings something new and fresh to the music. "
"Call of Duty: Black Ops II" is the sequel to the universally acclaimed "Call of Duty: Black Ops," which, following its launch in 2010, set the record for the biggest entertainment launch in history. Set in the year 2025, the sequel propels players into global conflict featuring advanced weaponry, robotics, and drone warfare in a new Cold War scenario whose seeds are being sown in today's headlines.
