John Woo's Stranglehold


Midway Chicago, Tiger Hill Entertainment

Audio Director:

Richard Carle

Music by:

Jamie Christopherson, Dynamedian, Monarch Audio

Composer Notes:

The music for this game turned out to be pretty intense. Before any of the music was written I recorded a large Taiko drum ensemble and then chopped those up into smaller fragments to be used in the cues.

On top of that I added some electric guitars (many of them detuned to sound more interesting), traditional Asian istruments and modern orchestral elements.

It was wonderful to work on a project with such an iconic director as John Woo.
