Jack Wall – Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
ASCAP award-winning and BAFTA & DICE nominated composer Jack Wall’s latest score for Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War is his most dramatic to date, forging a new scale of theatrical action-scoring featuring foreboding live orchestral performances shadowed by heavy 1980s modular synths. Preview the main theme here.
“I wanted to create something for the main menu that immediately said very clearly ‘Cold War’: Reagan, Brezhnev, Soviet choir. I wrote a distinctly “of the era, Soviet’ sounding theme, mixing Soviet choir and orchestra with dark synths, making music and sound in the ‘80s (Moog Modular, Minimoog, CS80 – as well as other soft synths) to give it that dark, shadowy Black Ops feel in the time of larger-than-life Cold War political figures like Reagan and Brezhnev.” – Jack Wall
