Jesper Kyd scores Assassin’s Creed II

Posted on November 6, 2009 by Dan Goldwasser

Earlier this summer, award-winning composer Jesper Kyd was in Hollywood to record his score for the new sequel, Assassin’s Creed II. The follow-up to the popular 2007 Ubisoft game will be released for next-gen consoles on November 17th, and we’re excited to bring you an exclusive look at the scoring sessions for Kyd’s epic score.

Recording took place at famed Capitol Records Studio A, where orchestrator/contractor Jason Poss conducted a 30-piece string ensemble and 13-voice choir. In the booth, composer Jesper Kyd was assisted by Carl Vaudrin, music preparation and score reader Danita Ng-Poss, and music editor Kevin Bassinon. Award-winning scoring mixer John Kurlander handled the recording duties.
