Today composer Rod Abernethy and
Rednote Audio

  announce their involvement in the production of
the authentic and edgy score for Wheelman™, the highly-anticipated driving game
starring action-film megastar Vin Diesel as an expert driver for hire. Wheelman
is developed by Midway Studios – Newcastle Ltd in close association with Vin
Diesel’s video game production company Tigon Studios and is being published
worldwide by Ubisoft® and Midway.

Combining spectacular
Hollywood-style stunts with a gripping storyline, Wheelman provides an
adrenaline-fueled, cinematic thrill ride through the winding streets of
Barcelona, Spain. To enhance the experience of over-the-top car chases in this
stylish setting, Rod Abernethy and Rednote Audio created the majority of the
game’s intense hybrid score blending Flamenco guitars, modern electronica and
hi-octane orchestral music into a heart-pounding audio experience that matches
the gameplay and on-screen sequences.

"Working on Wheelman was a very
rewarding experience," said composer Rod Abernethy. "My goal with Wheelman was
to create a cinematic, hard-hitting score that has a traditional Spanish feel
with a powerful, modern style."

Wheelman is expected to ship to
retailers March 24, 2009, in North America and has a scheduled street date of
March 27, 2009, in Europe. Wheelman will be available for the Xbox 360® video
game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PLAYSTATION®3 computer
entertainment system, and for Windows PC. For more information on Wheelman,
