LOS ANGELES – October 8th, 2004 – Known for his
epic and ambitious scores for games, composer Inon Zur (www.inonzur.com)
today announced his original music soundtrack for SHADOW OPS: RED
MERCURY™, the blockbuster action shooter developed by Zombie
Studios and published by Atari, will be available on CD with the Special
Edition release of the game in Europe. Composed and conducted by Zur,
the SHADOW OPS: RED MERCURY soundtrack features more
than an hour of rousing live orchestral music that reacts to the player’s
actions and changes for each location.
Joe Zajonc, Zombie Studios’ Audio Director for SHADOW OPS: RED MERCURY,
said, "Inon Zur has a certain magic in saturating a situation with
emotional content. He developed such a synergy between the ethnic sounds and
western orchestra, creating highly energetic and passionate music."
In their review of the in-game soundtrack, GameSpot attested, "His involvement
has indeed enhanced the cinematic and dramatic feel of the game," while TeamXbox
concluded, "Expect a soundtrack as moving as many big budget action films-this
is no exaggeration."

television and video games. Zur’s game credits include
Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within (cinematics), Men Of Valor,
Champions: Return To Arms, Starcraft: Ghost (cinematics), SOCOM
