'Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter' (ALL) Gets Orchestral Soundtrack

Following his work on Cold Fear and Ghost Recon 2, Tom Salta has composed and produced the anthemic live orchestral soundtrack for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter. Scheduled to ship for March 2006, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter focuses on the deployment of the Soldier of the Future – the "warfighter," into the chaos of urban warfare.

Salta has written all of the original music for the game, including the Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter main theme, which enhances the drama and emotion of the epic storyline and intense tactical gameplay action. The score was recorded with the Northwest Sinfonia Orchestra at the prestigious Bastyr Chapel in Seattle. Combining his expertise in programming and mixing hit records with the highest production values, Salta also blended contemporary electronic sounds into the score to capture the modern, hi-tech feel of the game. Visit the Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter official website via www.ghostrecon.com to hear a preview of Tom Salta’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter main theme music.

Manu Bachet, Artistic Director at Ubisoft, said, "Tom Salta has created an explosive 5.1 score that mixes hi-tech elements, wild rhythms, and a live symphony orchestra. Not only was he able to find the perfect alchemy, but his music supports the action perfectly, and, most of all, it brings real emotion to the gameplay experience."

In addition to these recent videogame composing and recording ventures, Salta’s hard-driving electronica and orchestral grooves grace many television shows, commercials and film promos. Recording under the artist name ‘Atlas Plug’ (www.atlasplug.com), he is currently working on the follow-up to his highly acclaimed debut solo album 2 Days or Die.
