Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X 2 From Ubisoft Flies High With An Anthemic Music Score By Tom Salta



New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Ubisoft) - Award-winning composer and music producer Tom Salta, who scored the action-packed orchestral music score for Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X, the first air-combat game set in the world-renowned Tom Clancy's video game universe, returns to provide an all-new music soundtrack for the sequel, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X 2. Developed by Ubisoft's Bucharest studio, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X 2 plunges fans into an explosive environment where they can become elite aerial soldiers in control of the world's most technologically advanced aircraft. Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X 2 is now available in North America for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation3 computer entertainment system. For more information visit www.hawxgame.com.

From Moscow to the Persian Gulf, from the Arctic Circle to the Indian Ocean, Salta's dynamic original score for Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X 2 reflects the game's new multinational cinematic story narrative. It presents emotional, dynamic themes with rousing Russian choral chants, cinematic Middle-Eastern instrumentals, pulse-pounding combat music, and suspenseful covert ambience. The hybrid score was written, recorded and produced by Tom Salta; it features a live choir, electric guitar and solo acoustic performances with A-list musicians and vocalists from the New York Film Chorale.

"Tom Salta brought a new level of engagement to the story and gameplay of H.A.W.X 2 with this fantastic score," said Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X 2 Narrative and Creative Director Edward Douglas. "From large-scale orchestral and choral tracks to unexpected intimate moments, he truly takes the player on an international journey with this soundtrack. I would not want to work on another project without Tom helming the score."

Tom Salta is one of the most in-demand musical talents working in multimedia, including film, television, advertising, and (most notably) video games. His previous credits include the original scores for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter (GRAW was nominated for "Best Video Game Score" at the MTV Video Music Awards), the acclaimed sequel (Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2) and the live-action trailer for Tom Clancy™'s Ghost Recon Future Soldier™. Salta will deliver the keynote address for GameSoundCon at Columbia University in New York on October 2-3, 2010. For more information on Tom Salta, visit www.tomsalta.com.
