Gears of War Composer Scores Aliens: Colonial Marines

Gears of War Composer Kevin Riepl returns to Sci-Fi genre to score Aliens: Colonial Marines

Award-winning film and video game composer Kevin Riepl (Silent Night, ABCs of Death, The Aggression Scale, Gears of War, Resistance: Burning Skies) has created an original symphonic score for the highly anticipated ALIENS: COLONIAL MARINES video game, launching worldwide on February 12, 2013.

Continuing the legacy of Jerry Goldsmith's music in ALIEN and James Horner's music in ALIENS, Kevin Riepl's original score for ALIENS: COLONIAL MARINES features all new themes and atmospheric underscores while staying faithful to the franchise's iconic scores of Ridley Scott's and James Cameron's classic sci-fi horror cinema. Infusing his haunting, sweeping and bombastic orchestral score with familiar nods and intense cinematic action music performed by full live orchestra, Riepl draws on his own classical training and film scoring background to create an authentic ALIENS: COLONIAL MARINES score that will immerse players in the definitive ALIENS gaming experience.

Composing music for multiple entertainment genres, Kevin Riepl's engaging and atmospheric scores have enhanced numerous indie films such as ABCs OF DEATH, CLEMENCY, THE AGGRESSION SCALE (Global Music Awards Winner) and the recent holiday season horror feature, SILENT NIGHT. In addition to scoring film festival winners and genre cult films including the emotional sci-fi short HENRI starring Keir Dullea (2001: A Space Odyssey) and Oddball Animation Studios' stunning concept film, RUIN (Global Music Awards Winner), Kevin Riepl is also renowned for composing the epic, signature score for the blockbuster video game GEARS OF WAR. Most recently his sci-fi action score for Sony's RESISTANCE: BURNING SKIES was awarded "Best Original Score for a Video Game or Interactive Media" in the 2013 Movie Music UK Awards.
