The first time Inon Zur came by our office to sit down for an interview, he had Dragon Age: Origins, Fallout 3 and Prince of Persia under his belt. Now, just a year later, he has just wrapped up Dragon Age II and is busy with projects that he can't talk about yet (part of the joy of working in games.) However, I did get to ask him what it was like composing the score to Dragon Age II and find out how he approaches his work in this comprehensive video interview below.
