Jack Wall: Call of Duty, Black Ops III

Jack Wall has composed video game music for more than 20 years including for the Myst franchise, Splinter Cell, Jade Empire, Mass Effect and Call of Duty, whose Black Ops III release is 2015’s biggest-grossing media entertainment release. Wall’s soundtrack is big, dramatic and full of surprises that one might expect in films but not video games. In this audio profile, Wall, who won Best Video Game Score at the 2013 ASCAP Film and TV Music Awards, talks about how video composing has evolved, and how the Black Ops series included wonderful side projects needing entirely different scores.
