A little Soule music: composer talks games

Gamecloud has been hosting a series of Q&A sessions with notable game developers and this week's guest is award winning composer Jeremy Soule. It might be easier to list the games Soule hasn't worked on, but you've probably heard his immersive soundtracks in RPGs such as Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, Dungeon Siege, Morrowind, and Knights of the Old Republic. He's also scored action-adventure titles Unreal II, SOCOM, and a series of Harry Potter games.

With such an impressive track record, Soule claims he is most proud of his recent work on Guild Wars and the Direct Song web portal that offers downloadable musical expansion packs — a first in the industry.

The busy musician is also an avid gamer and says he is really looking forward to playing Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and RTS titles Supreme Commander and Company of Heroes, although he feels the online sword and sorcery genre may quickly become oversaturated in the next year. As long as Soule's music is featured, that might not be such a bad thing.
