Level 61: Niels Bye Nielsen (Hitman 2016)
The music in Hitman 2016 is a departure from what it sounded like in past games in the series. Composer Niels Bye Nielsen talks about writing music in a style more akin to James Bond or the Mission Impossible series.
We also discuss what it’s like being from Denmark and writing for one of the most famous video games to emerge from that country, although Niels lives in LA these days. You’ll hear about how he got into the composing business, learn some of his favorite classical composers and pieces, and hear a lot of great music.
Enjoy! He’s fabulous!
