Jesper Kyd: Composer

Jesper Kyd: Composer -

The composer for The Chronicles of Spellborn is named Jesper Kyd. Kyd is a Danish-born composer who has previous experience working in both video games and films. Recently, The Chronicles of Spellborn's official website posted an interview with their music-man.

1. Can you tell us how you got involved in the MMORPG The Chronicles of Spellborn?

I was contacted by the developers of Spellborn about a new, highly crafted game they were working on. They sent me over some details and after reading through this material, it was obvious that these guys were working on something very special. I loved the idea, story and the extremely ambitious game mechanics. I knew I wanted to be a part of this team and the massive effort that has been put into this extraordinary game.

2. How did the selection period go; what was this procedure like?

There were 5 other composers pitching for the project, which Spellborn had approached. After receiving game materials we were asked to collate some music that might fit and send it over.

After listening to the music submissions, 2 composers were asked to write some custom demo tracks for the game. Following more discussion with Spellborn's Matthew Florianz, I had a good idea of what kind of approach and music style would fit the world. I was especially excited by the creative encouragement I got from the team and their willingness to go beyond generic music styles. Creative freedom is not something which happens that often in video games or film soundtracks, but when it does happen I take it and run with it ;)
