Conan Composer Interview -

For this week's Friday Feature on the Age of Conan official site, Funcom has posted an interview with the composer of the Age of Conan soundtrack, Knut Avenstroup Haugen.

To celebrate the release of the Age of Conan soundtrack (now available on iTunes), we are pleased to present this interview with our composer, Knut Avenstroup Haugen, covering the entire process of putting together the soundtrack, his background, and what goes into all of the exciting tracks you hear in the world of Hyboria.

What is your name and what do you do for Age of Conan?

My name is Knut Avenstroup Haugen and I create all the music in the game.

What is your musical background? Outside of Age of Conan, where would we have seen your work?

I started out studying the piano. I went to conservatories in Norway and in the Netherlands for a total of six years before I decided that what I really wanted to do was to write music. I studied a little bit of composition and arranging during my piano studies, but I really needed to learn more, so I went on to study composition and musicology for three years at the University of Oslo.
