Film composer Ryan Shore has created the action-driven music score for Spy Hunter, the reboot of the legendary combat driving series, specially developed for PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS. Launching in North America on October 9, Spy Hunter is published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developed by TT Fusion. Spy Hunter marks the first video game score for composer Ryan Shore who recently received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Score Soundtrack (The Shrine).
In the game, players take on the role of the "Agent," driver of the legendary G-6155 Interceptor Supercar, armed extensively with advanced weaponry and high-tech gadgetry, and ready to take on a global terrorist organization set on world domination. Experience total control, as the Interceptor seamlessly transforms from supercar to off-road assault vehicle to speed boat, allowing you to eliminate threats wherever your mission takes you.
For Spy Hunter, Shore composed a contemporary hybrid music score by fusing live performances with electronic grooves and overdubs. Recording with a jazz big band Ryan acoustically re-created Henry Mancini's iconic theme to Peter Gunn and remixed the new arrangement with modern electronic sounds. The soundtrack will be released on Amazon MP3 and iTunes through WaterTower Music on October 9th, 2012. Preview samples of the score are available here.
Upon graduating from the prestigious Berklee College of Music on a full scholarship, Ryan Shore began his scoring career working for his uncle, Academy Award winning composer Howard Shore. Among his diverse motion picture portfolio, Ryan's credits include Prime, Harvard Man, Numb, The Girl Next Door and Cabin Fever 2. In addition to his 2012 Grammy nomination for The Shrine, Ryan was previously honored with the Elmer Bernstein Scoring Award and the prestigious Clive Davis Award, among numerous other industry awards. He has also played saxophone with artists including Matchbox Twenty. For more information visit www.ryanshore.com.
