Being the former president of Island Music, and a highly successful film music supervisor with credits including‘Angel Heart’, Notting Hill’ and‘Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’, Marc lends a wealth of experience to the already renowned Nimrod team.

“It is important for game audio to grow and improve its creative standards in line with its technical achievements - and with a talented mind such as Marc’s on board it enables Nimrod to offer an unparalleled and unique service focusing on great quality music for the best games around...” commented Rich Aitken, head of production at Nimrod.

Marc has begun work on several high profile projects, inspiring Nimrod’s clients with groundbreaking soundtrack solutions - from licensed soundtracks to providing inventive and exciting composers to create original scores.

“I've always been interested in breaking new ground, and my alliance with Nimrod will take me much deeper into the Games industry,” stated Marc Marot.“In the past my clients have scored many projects for the games industry in a rather ad hoc fashion, however the combination of Nimrod and myself will mean we'll be able to undertake bigger and broader projects, offering the games industry a truly 360 degree full service."
