Battle Bards Episode 148: Composer spotlight on Inon Zur

    
3

On a special theme episode of Battle Bards, acclaimed composer Inon Zur is given the spotlight, especially for his contributions to several MMORPG soundtracks such as RIFT, TERA, and EverQuest II. If you’ve only known Zur as “The Fallout Guy,” then prepared to be pleasantly illuminated as to the wider body of his work! Also, the crew takes in an orphaned music track and gives it the name “Steve.” We will always love you, Steve.

Good choice on featuring Inon. Two works he did I very much admired were the very Celtic sounding music in Leiliana’s Song from Dragon Age Origins, and of course the Fallout ambient music. It was interesting how despite the wonderful Radio New Vegas, I would occasionally turn it off and listen to Inon’s beautiful ambient music.
