LAS VEGAS, NV – July 11, 2013 – The Dragon Kings design team announced today that veteran computer game composer Frank Klepacki has signed on to produce the album for the new multi-media fantasy role-playing setting.
“I worked with Frank on the End of Nations computer game,” says lead Dragon Kings creator Timothy Brown. “He’s a terrific guy with a phenomenal resume! Our music production and engineering are in good hands.”
“When I’m not composing for games and tv, I produce other artists in the Las Vegas area regularly,” adds Frank Klepacki, “and the opportunity to work with Tim Brown and Mike Stone to produce and engineer their musical vision to completion is right up my alley, as progressive rock has played a big part in my own musical background.”
Klepacki has a massive list of video game soundtrack and audio direction credits, including Dune, Blade Runner, the Command & Conquer series, and Star Wars: Empire at War. He has also done music for television and commercials, and won GDC Spotlight and PC Gamer awards, among others.
Dragon Kings is a new fantasy game world conceived and presented in fiction, art, and music simultaneously. “Adding music as a key design and immersive game element is an important innovation,” says Brown. “It’s essential that we get the music right, and Frank brings a lot of talent to the project.” Former Queensrÿche guitarist Mike Stone was announced last week as the Dragon Kings project’s lead musician and songwriter.
