From Power Rangers to Digimon, and Fallout 3 to Dragon Age: Origins, award-winning composer Inon Zur has worked on video games, movie trailers, television, anime, and film. With more than 40 video games already under his belt, he is currently working on the music for Fallout: New Vegas as well as several other unannounced projects.
Born in Israel, Zur was interested in music at a very young age. He spent four years in the Israeli military before immigrating to the United States in 1990 to study at the Dick Grove School of Music and eventually UCLA. His award-winning score for Dragon Age: Origins was performed live by the Malmo Symphony Orchestra in Sweden back in May.
His credits include:
Prince of Persia (2008)
Dragon Age: Origins
Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones
Prince of Persia: Warrior Within (Cinematics)
Men of Valor
SOCOM II: U.S. Navy SEALs
Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal
