Massive Attack producer to compose the Halo 4 music

massive attack producer to compose the halo 4 music joinsAs if you needed any further justification to pick up the next installment of the Halo franchise from Microsoft and 343 Industries, here’s another: the soundtrack will be composed by Massive Attack’s producer, Neil Davidge.

When it was announced that Bungie would be leaving behind the franchise that had made it famous (and arguably saved the Xbox in the process), fans were understandably concerned about the future of the series. But as more and more news of the upcoming title is released, there are a lot of good reasons to be excited for when the game is released later this year. And while the music alone probably won’t get anyone to shell out the $60 or so for Halo 4, bringing in the producer of one of the pioneers in electronica music is a good fit and can only help.  

Beyond his career as a producer for Massive attack, Davidge has recently made a name for himself creating music for movies, including Luc Besson and Jet Li’s Danny the Dog (later renamed Unchained), the Oscar nominated score for Trouble With Water, and Clash of the Titans. This marks the first foray into video games for Davidge.

“As a passionate ‘Halo’ fan, I’m incredibly honored and thrilled to have the opportunity to compose the score for Halo 4,” Davidge said in a press release. “Music has always been at the heart of what makes ‘Halo’ so captivating and iconic. With Halo 4, we want to build upon the franchise’s amazing legacy and create a score that captures the awe and wonder of the ‘Halo’ universe, and reinforces the deeper and more emotionally impactful journey Master Chief will embark on.”
