The Elder Scrolls Series
Down 12. The only entry for video games composer Jeremy Soule.
He may be seen as John Williams of video game soundtracks by the gaming community, but composer Jeremy Soule actually takes his inspiration from quite a different style of music, basing his work on Debussy's exploration of harmony, Wagner's grand operas, and Mozart's form and composition. It's clearly worked out well for him — he's currently written the soundtracks for more than 60 gaming titles, with some of his best-known work being The Elder Scrolls series. The centrepiece of his work on Skyrim is undoubtedly the monumental 'Dragonborn', which features a 30-strong choir, but also features said choir singing in a specially conceived dragon language particular to the games themselves.
