    Jeremy Soule Wins VMA Award for Best Video Game Score

    Hey Everyone,

    I'm not sure if this was announced or not, but fellow Garritan-user, Jeremy Soule, won a MTV VMA for Best Video Game Score for his music to Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. This year was the first time this category was judged. It's good to see Jeremy win.

    A critically acclaimed composer and musician, Jeremy Soule heads Artistry Entertainment, a distinguished leader in music production for the interactive entertainment industry. According to 2002 figures furnished by www.NPD.com, Artistry Entertainment is the most distributed provider of original "film-quality" music for the games industry. This accomplishment includes over ten major releases and as many as six top-sellers composed for five of the world's largest publishers.

    Jeremy's award-winning, orchestral soundtracks have elevated the standard of music in the interactive entertainment industry to a level previously limited to the motion picture genre. His dynamic compositions reveal a natural ability to create powerful and engaging music using both fine instruments as well as an unsurpassed, proprietary library of synthesizers that successfully emulates the sound and feel of a 100-piece orchestra. Soule's creativity, technological expertise and cutting-edge approach to composition has placed him at the top of the composer A-list in the entertainment software industry, and his work has been applauded time and time again by some of the world's most prominent music and entertainment industry professionals.

    Most recently, Jeremy's score for The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind was nominated for "Game Soundtrack of the Year" in Game Industry News (www.gameindustry.com). Soule also created the original score for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets for EA, which won the IGN 2002 award for Best Adventure Game." In February, four titles featuring soundtracks created by Soule were announced as finalists in the 2002 Interactive Achievement Awards, sponsored by the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences. These titles garnered a total of eight nominations in several categories, including "PC Game of the Year," "PC RPG of the Year," "Family PC Game of the Year," "Outstanding Achievement in Game Design," "Innovation in PC Gaming" and "Outstanding Achievement in Original Musical Composition."

    Someone needs to tip these press releasers off about sample libraries

    And very cool! Much congratulations to Jeremy. He's been one of my favourite composers for years now, and it's great to see him win honors like this. I've been meaning to meet him some day, considering he lives in the area, but who knows when that'll be happening.

    It's nice to see he has been recognized with the MTV VMA Award.. Jeremy has done so much for game music.

    Jeremy was the very first person to use GPO in a production. Several years ago he used GPO in the music for the MTV Music Awards.

    Congratulations Jeremy!
