New York, September 8, 2010 - Award-winning composer and music producer Tom Salta, who scored the action-packed orchestral music score for Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X ® , the first air-combat game set in the world-renowned Tom Clancy's video game universe, returns to provide an all-new music soundtrack for the sequel, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X 2. Developed by Ubisoft's Bucharest studio, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X 2 plunges fans into an explosive environment where they can become elite aerial soldiers in control of the world's most technologically advanced aircraft. Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X 2 is now available in North America for the Xbox 360 ® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation ® 3 computer entertainment system.

From Moscow to the Persian Gulf, from the Arctic Circle to the Indian Ocean, Salta's dynamic original score for Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X 2 reflects the game's new multinational cinematic story narrative. It presents emotional, dynamic themes with rousing Russian choral chants, cinematic Middle-Eastern instrumentals, pulse-pounding combat music, and suspenseful covert ambience. The hybrid score was written, recorded and produced by Tom Salta; it features a live choir, electric guitar and solo acoustic performances with A-list musicians and vocalists from the New York Film Chorale.
"Tom Salta brought a new level of engagement to the story and gameplay of H.A.W.X 2 with this fantastic score," said Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X 2 Narrative and Creative Director Edward Douglas. "From large-scale orchestral and choral tracks to unexpected intimate moments, he truly takes the player on an international journey with this soundtrack. I would not want to work on another project without Tom helming the score."
