The CRYSIS Original Soundtrack features over an hour of original orchestral music written and conducted by award-winning film, television and video game composer Inon Zur and performed by the Northwest Sinfonia Orchestra. Renowned for composing emotionally dynamic orchestral music, Inon Zur was commissioned by Crytek to produce a modern cinematic score that heightens the impact of the dramatic storyline, realistic environments and highly-evolved gameplay.
Inon Zur's compositions feature sweeping themes, immersive setup pieces, intense action music, and "otherworldly" musical soundscapes performed by the orchestra to invoke the alien influences in the game.
Zur's previous video game credits include Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones, Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, Men of Valor, Champions of Norrath: Realms of EverQuest, SOCOM II, Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal. For more information on the composer please visit www.inonzur.com.
