This is what you'll be listening to while you stab several people in a row.
A new video from the Assassin's Creed UK YouTube channel is introducing Austin Wintory, the composer behind the soundtrack of this fall's 'Assassin's Creed Syndicate.'
Instead of drawing inspiration from Victorian-era music, Wintory based his compositions on the setting of London itself and the personality of the twin protagonists, according to the accompanying Ubisoft blog post. Wintory attempted to capture both sides of London—the grand and the seedy—in one score. He also adds that waltzes and other dance motifs reoccur throughout the soundtrack, making reference to the almost effortless way Jacob and Evie Frye go about their messy business.
Wintory is no stranger to video game composition, having written music for 'Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine,' 'The Banner Saga,' 'Counter Strike: Global Offensive,' and 'Journey.' Wintory even netted a Grammy nomination for his 'Journey' score.
