Historical Songaday: Day 13 (Jesper Kyd - Venice Rooftops)

Jesper Kyd is the composer for the Assassin's Creed games and the Hitman games, among others. His work on the first AC was nice, but go listen to the second game, it's brilliant. If you didn't know, Assassin's Creed is a Ubisoft game that features a lot of climbing on stuff. Very pretty stuff. Very pretty stuff of which many are real important locations from the time period and area. The history in the games is fascinating if you know where to look.
I'm probably going to regret the utter lack of links that I can come up with for game music.
I wrote FAR more extensively on my opinions on Assassin's Creed music, especially III's, in the first Sunday Songs. ACII is still my favorite of the AC soundtracks btw.
Look just read the Sunday Songs installment on Assassin's Creed. It has more than enough links.

End Recording,
