Hitman Composer Jesper Kyd Scores Double Album Release
BAFTA award-winning composer Jesper Kyd (Hitman: Contracts, Freedom Fighters, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory) has partnered with Hollywood film soundtrack label La-La Land Records to release the original score from the first Hitman video game, Hitman: Codename 47. The 2-disc set also features a re-mastered version of the classic symphonic score to Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, regarded as some of the best music ever recorded for the genre.

Pre-order now at www.lalalandrecords.com/Hitman.html and, for a limited time, get your 2-CD set autographed by composer Jesper Kyd. The Hitman: Codename 47/ Hitman 2: Silent Assassin double album will be available from major retailers in July, 2005.

Presented here in its first official CD release, the soundtrack from Hitman: Codename 47 features Kyd’s dynamic blend of electronic and cinematic music - which he developed further on the darker, BAFTA award-winning Hitman: Contracts score - and is the latest collectable for fans of the best-selling Hitman games. The Hitman 2: Silent Assassin score, recently celebrated in GameSpot’s A History of Video Game Music: The Hitmen of Budapest, was recorded with 110 musicians of the Budapest Symphony and Choir. In 2004, the music of Hitman 2 was performed during the “GC” Game Music Symphony concert in Europe, the first event series of its kind outside of Japan.

The Hitman series is developed by IO-Interactive and published by Eidos. Jesper Kyd is currently scoring the latest installment in the mutli-million selling series, Hitman: Blood Money. For more information please visit www.jesperkyd.com.
