Ubisoft today announced that recording artist Amon Tobin is composing the original soundtrack for Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, scheduled to ship for PC and the Xbox video game system from Microsoft for Holiday 2004, with the Playstation 2 version to follow.
Tobin uses an eclectic array of sounds, both electronic and organic, to create unique sonic landscapes, conjuring diverse and distinctive musical atmospheres that range from playful to menacing.
"Music and sounds have always been an extremely important aspect of Splinter Cell games, and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory will use both in innovative ways that enhance the sense of immersion and directly affect gameplay," said Tony Kee, vice president of marketing for Ubisoft. "Ubisoft always seeks out creative collaborators of the highest quality, and Amon Tobin's moody, genre-bending, cutting-edge music is the perfect fit for Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory."
Tobin's original score will be heard throughout Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory; he and label Ninja Tune will also be releasing a companion soundtrack CD featuring extended and re-mastered versions of the themes from the game to coincide with the release of the game this year, with a limited collectors edition mixed in 5.1 surround sound planned for release in spring 2005.
