MTV VMA nominated composer Tom Salta, one of the most versatile and prolific music artists/producers working in film, television, advertising and video games, provides the original score for 343 Industries’ first mobile title “Halo: Spartan Assault,” an epic “Halo” experience for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 launching today.  Released simultaneously with the game, the “Halo: Spartan Assault Original Soundtrack” features 27 tracks from Salta’s original score and is available worldwide on AmazoniTunes, Xbox Music and other digital music services through Microsoft Studios Music.

 

Tom Salta created an authentic “Halo” original score for “Spartan Assault,” blending ethereal choral arrangements, piano motifs, rock guitars, synth ambience and sweeping sci-fi orchestral compositions that are distinctly representative of the franchise.  Salta also expands the “Halo” universe with original sounds to complement the musical blueprint of the first trilogy and beyond, combined with a full modern sound production to create a contemporary and classic “Halo” soundtrack.
