- Richard Jacques today announced the release of the official soundtrack album of his music from Sega's Headhunter and Headhunter: Redemption. The 2-CD set is now available from www.lalalandrecords.com/Headhunter.html
and will be on sale at music and entertainment retailers from September 21st, 2004.
Richard Jacques' score for the original Headhunter was the first video game soundtrack to utilize the famous Abbey Road Studios and record with a live symphony orchestra most often associated with Hollywood films such as James Bond, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter and Star Wars. In 2003, the music of Headhunter and Headhunter: Redemption was performed live at the legendary Gewandhaus concert hall in Leipzig, Germany, during the first game music symphony concert outside of Japan.
"From the very beginning Richard Jacques shared the same ambition to create something special with the Headhunter soundtracks," said John Kroknes, Executive Producer and Director for both Headhunter games. "He's one hell of a composer and his commitment and attitude was a great inspiration."
Richard Jacques' previous soundtrack album credits include the cult hit Jet Set Radio and the award-winning Jet Set Radio Future. Most recently he produced tracks for an upcoming SEGA title for Xbox and is currently writing an original orchestral score for Empire Interactive's Starship Troopers based on the Sony Pictures movie and animated franchise.
