Jesper Kyd Essentials

Jesper Kyd Essentials

One of the video-game industry’s most accomplished composers, Jesper Kyd firmly believes that the role of the soundtrack is to serve the story above all else. The Danish musician’s most popular credits, like the historically informed symphonic pieces for the mega-popular Assassin’s Creed franchise, are testaments to this philosophy. Still, Kyd’s work possesses several hallmark qualities. In addition to fusing orchestral and choral arrangements with electronic music, he continues to lean heavily on the kind of analogue synthesisers he’s been using since the early ’90s when Kyd was cutting his teeth on 8-bit music.
