Eric Peterson, President of Vicious Cycle Software, Inc. said, "We hired Jesper Kyd to create the music for Robotech: Invasion because of the work he has done in the past. The music awards that Jesper has received over the years for games is a testament to the quality of his work. He created a fantastic score for our game and we couldn't be happier with the results. The music is dark, action-packed and full of variety - creating the pace that we wanted to have in the game."
The Robotech: Invasion soundtrack features live choral performances by the Hungarian Radio Choir, combined with Kyd’s distinct electronica and symphonic styles. The Budapest-based choir previously performed vocal duties on Kyd’s soundtracks for Freedom Fighters (Billboard 2004 Digital Entertainment Awards Finalist – "Best Use of Sound in a Game") and Hitman: Contracts (BAFTA Games Awards Finalist – "Original Music.")
Kyd’s other soundtrack album releases include Hitman: Contracts, Freedom Fighters, Brute Force, and Hitman 2: Silent Assassin. He is currently scoring new titles for Eidos and Microsoft and has recorded live symphony sessions in Budapest and Paris where he recorded with a 150-member orchestra and choir for an upcoming project. Most recently he scored the cinematics and additional music for Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. For more information visit www.jesperkyd.com.
