15 Years of Assassin’s Creed

Ubisoft celebrates landmark soundtrack

Ubisoft has spent several weeks counting down 15 years of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Last week featured Assassin’s Creed 2. This week they reached the original Assassin’s Creed, and the 15th Anniversary Website features Jesper Kyd’s landmark soundtrack that defined the sound of the series.

SoS is proud of our work helping Jesper Kyd create the unique soundtracks of both Assassin’s Creed 1 & 2, which became signature elements of this beloved game series.

Aragami 2 Music Nominated for Two G.A.N.G. Awards

The Game Audio Network Guild (G.A.N.G.) has nominated the music of Aragami 2 for two awards:

  • Creative and Technical Achievement in Music
  • Best Music for an Indie Game

Aragami 2’s soundtrack had big aspirations and a limited budget. We are proud to have helped composers Elvira Björkman and Nicklas Hjertberg find creative ways to realize their musical vision. The project was a collaborative, international effort with the composers in Sweden, developer Lince Works in Spain, and SoS’s orchestration and string recordings in Los Angeles. Good communication and careful planning led to success during a time in the COVID pandemic when international travel was not an option.

Congratulations to Björkman, Hjertberg, and Lince Works for achieving your ambitions and creating a unique, compelling musical experience.
