Best known for composing the unique, thematic music soundtracks for ASSASSIN'S CREED, BORDERLANDS and HITMAN, Kyd's compelling and distinctive scores feature a diverse array of instrumentation including orchestra, choir, soloists, acoustic manipulations and electronic soundscapes, immersing audiences with emotional depth and often described by critics as 'rousing,' 'surreal' and 'beautiful.'

Spanning from his iconic symphonic and electronic scores for the HITMAN series which won him a BAFTA for Best Original Music, to the post-apocalyptic wasteland themes of BORDERLANDS, and his evocative Middle-Eastern and Renaissance-era scores for the history-inspired ASSASSIN'S CREED series, Jesper Kyd constantly evolves his craft as a leading artist for creating memorable and inspirational original soundtracks. His latest scores include the just released action/adventure DARKSIDERS II and the upcoming role-playing-shooter BORDERLANDS 2, as well as the live action sci-fi TV series METAL HURLANT CHRONICLES based on the "Heavy Metal" comics.
