For the second Jason Graves will be joining SoundTrack_Cologne. In the past years he estasblished himself even further as one of the most sought video game composers. He wrote the music for high profile games such as The Order: 1886, Dead Space, Evolve and the 2013 reboot of the successful Tomb Raider series.
He was already an established film composer and had worked on the music for movies such as The Thin Red Line, Black Hawk Down, White Squall and Earthsea, when Jeff Rona started to compose for video games. Amongst others he wrote the music for God of War 3 and more recently Far Cry 4. He can be counted among the most busy contemporary film and games composers and will give a practically orientated workshop as well as a concert at SoundTrack_Cologne.
