Sound Byte: Meet the Composer - Command & Conquer 4's James Hannigan
From Command & Conquer 4 to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, find out how James Hannigan handles it all.
Last week, we met with Dead Space composer Jason Graves--who also contributed to Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight's soundtrack. This week, we introduce you to James Hannigan, an award-winning British composer who has been working in video games for more than 15 years. A long-time pianist, James initially worked in television but decided to move to the video game world when music in games migrated from midi and chip music to digital audio. Our UK team met with James last year, and if you want to listen to the podcast, you can do so by click on the link! But for the video interview, check it out below.
