Real Name:
Jesper Kyd
Profile:
British Academy award winner Jesper Kyd (b. February 3, 1972 in Hørsholm, Denmark) writes captivating electronic and symphonic music for video games and movies. Kyd's dedication to produce memorable, immersive scores that transcend traditional repertoires has gained him international critical acclaim from the arts and entertainment industry. Spotlighted as a 'Rising Star' by The Hollywood Reporter and hailed as a 'Leading Game Composer' by Electronic Musician, his powerful blend of ambient, electronic and classical orchestrations enhances the emotional and dramatic impact of numerous cinematic productions including the multi-million selling Hitman video game series (IOI/Eidos) starring Agent 47 and the highly acclaimed action/adventure Freedom Fighters (IOI/Electronic Arts). He is currently scoring next generation titles for Eidos and Ubisoft.

Jesper's most recently released project, the stylish musical score for Hitman: Blood Money is nominated for 'Best Video Game Score' in the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs). Featuring a dynamic live orchestral score recorded with 90 musicians of the Budapest Symphony Orchestra and 60-piece Hungarian Radio Choir, Kyd's latest opus captures the cool, dark cinematic flair of Hitman by combining evocative choral performances with his brooding orchestral and electronic hybrid music styles. His unique fusion of DJ-style and minimalist electronica, surreal choir vocals and foreboding percussion grooves featured in Hitman: Contracts also garnered global attention as one of the truly groundbreaking original soundtracks.
