"300" Composer Scoring Rise of the Argonauts
If the music from the recent trailers for Rise of the Argonauts sounds like a style you’ve heard before, that’s probably because it’s from acclaimed composer, Tyler Bates. He’s known for some of his work on feature films, including 300, Dawn of the Dead, and the upcoming The Watchmen. This upcoming action RPG set in ancient Greece will mark his first foray into the world of video games, according to Bates:
“The mythical nature of Rise of the Argonauts encouraged me to go beyond TV and movies and compose the score for my first video game,” said Tyler Bates. “Rise of the Argonauts is an epic game with some of the biggest Greek heroes like Jason, Hercules and Achilles, which inspired me to compose dramatic, sweeping music to create the proper setting for this exciting adventure.”
If the man can put together soundtracks for such an epic and memorable film as 300, then he’s certainly more than qualified to lend his talents to a video game.
