Award-Winning Composer Tom Salta Scores Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands

Celebrated Composer Records A-List World Music Talent for Evocative Original Score Featured in New Prince of Persia for the Nintendo Wii

Tom Salta, one of the most decorated and prolific music composers for multimedia, has produced an original music score for Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands for the Nintendo Wii. Salta is renowned for crafting memorable, emotionally engaging scores for the medium and delivers a melodic and deeply immersive soundtrack that is essential to the rich gaming experience of Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands. Developed by Ubisoft's Production Studio in Quebec and built entirely from the ground up, Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands for the Nintendo Wii is a new chapter in the critically acclaimed Prince of Persia The Sands of Time series, which introduces players to a brand new storyline complete with new characters, and powers that transcend both nature and time. Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands is scheduled to be commercially released on May 18, 2010.

"An outstanding composer, Tom Salta is extremely passionate and truly committed to our project," said Aurelien Baguerre, audio director for Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands on the Nintendo Wii. "The action and gameplay are remarkably enhanced by Tom's beautiful orchestrations which unmistakably evoke Persian colors, providing a grandiose and emotional dimension to our game."

To fully immerse players in the Prince's new adventure, Salta composed and produced an intensely atmospheric and intricately woven original music score that captures the essence and spirit of the original Prince of Persia The Sands of Time and supports the new story and gameplay of Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands with a contemporary world music aesthetic. The score features performances recorded with globally revered percussionist Bashiri Johnson, dark hypnotic vocals by world music singer Azam Ali and ethereal vocals by international recording artist Judith Bérard, as well as world music and middle-eastern instrumentation such as doubek, kora, khangira, bowhammer cymbalom, lakota slide, walimba, ney, duduk and custom made instruments.
