Jesper Kyd

BAFTA award-winning and Billboard/MTV VMA nominated Danish composer Jesper Kyd creates memorable and immersive music for visual media.   Spanning from his operatic orchestral scores for the HITMAN series and anthemic Russian choral score for FREEDOM FIGHTERS, to his iconic Middle-Eastern, Renaissance and Greek inspired scores for the ASSASSIN’S CREED series and post-apocalyptic themes of BORDERLANDS, Jesper Kyd is renowned for composing deeply atmospheric and emotional music.

His latest release includes the uplifting orchestral album “LEGACY” recorded with the Budapest Symphony Orchestra, the highly anticipated follow-up to “ULTIMATUM”. Other recent projects include the  ‘faded Americana’ acoustic score for Microsoft’s STATE OF DECAY, the fastest selling original game on Xbox Live Arcade, and the surreal fantasy score for the action-adventure DARKSIDERS II, created by comic book writer/artist Joe Madureira, which garnered numerous critic accolades including “Top 10 Best Video Game Scores Ever” from Classical MPR.

Kyd is currently scoring the second season of the European live action sci-fi  television series METAL HURLANT CHRONICLES (Sony Pictures TV) adapted from the “HEAVY METAL” graphic novels by legendary artist Jean “Moebius” Giraud,  and the innovative online multiplayer World War II game, HEROES & GENERALS (Square Enix).
