“Goldsmith is one of the most versatile and talented music composers in the business and we’re excited to have him on board for Call of Duty 3,” said Tim Riley, Activision’s Worldwide Executive of Music. “Fans know to expect a ‘cinematically intense’ experience from the Call of Duty franchise – Goldsmith is the man for the job.”
The son of legendary composer Jerry Goldsmith, Joel collaborated with his father on several projects over the years, most notably on Star Trek: First Contact. The younger Goldsmith launched his career in the late seventies, and began to gain particular notoriety with projects that included The Man with Two Brains (1983) and then later The New Untouchables (1993), allowing Goldsmith to solidify his style, one that has since come to be marked by big, bold, symphonic scores. A three-time Emmy nominee for his work with “Stargate: Atlantis” and “SG-1,” Goldsmith currently serves as resident composer for the latter.
