Davide Mancini, firma conosciuta nel settore del giornalismo videoludico, intervisterà Jesper Kyd, il celebre compositore attivo in particolare nella creazione di colonne sonore per videogiochi e film, noto soprattutto per aver composto la colonna sonora delle serie di videogiochi Hitman e Assassin's Creed.


Davide Mancini - Giornalista videoludico

Davide Mancini ha fatto un giro lungo per arrivare nell’industry dei videogiochi, nonostante abbia cominciato al sua carriera ludica nel 1988, a tre anni, con un Commodore 64. Parallelamente al conseguimento della laurea magistrale in Scienze dello Spettacolo ha lavorato per anni nel mondo della comunicazione visiva, innamorandosi del web come piattaforma creativa e coltivando la sua ossessione per foto e video. La sua passione per i videogiochi, intesi soprattutto come fenomeno culturale, però, non è stata mai messa da parte: complici le due tesi di laurea sull’argomento (di cui una insospettabilmente premiata con il primo Premio Wired), ha cominciato a scrivere per The Shelter, e dopo pochissimo, per The Games Machine, la sua rivista preferita, con la quale ha collaborato fino all'altroieri. Giocare per la propria squadra del cuore è stato l’inizio di un vero e proprio sogno, fatto di collaborazioni con diverse testate (YouTech, Vice), attività di docenza e traduzione.

Jesper Kyd - Award-winning video game composer

BAFTA award-winning and Billboard / MTV VMA nominated Danish composer Jesper Kyd is
internationally renowned for creating unique scores with a diverse array of live
instrumentation and manipulated sounds. His original soundtracks feature an immersive
blend of styles ranging from the epic symphonic and dark, hybrid scores for the HITMAN
series (British Academy Award for Original Music) and anthemic choral score for cult favorite
FREEDOM FIGHTERS (“Vangelis on steroids” – Film Score Monthly), to his four iconic scores
for the blockbuster franchise ASSASSIN’S CREED (“Jesper Kyd defines the series for fans
around the world” – Official PlayStation Magazine) and the post-apocalyptic, fantasy, sci-fi
Most recently Kyd was honored with the 2018 Nile Rodgers Global Creators Award at
Canadian Music Week for his innovative and unique body of work in video games scoring.
His latest projects include composing and producing the Norse mythology inspired tribal
acoustic score for WARHAMMER: VERMINTIDE 2, based on the popular Games Workshop
fantasy universe, and atmospheric guitar and analog synth score for Microsoft/Undead Labs’
highly anticipated zombie survival sequel STATE OF DECAY 2.
Kyd’s non-traditional methodology is also attracting big screen collaborations with
international filmmakers including Chinese director Lu Chuan’s #1 box office 3D fantasy
action adventure ‘Chronicles of the Ghostly Tribe,’ based on the best-selling Chinese novel
‘Ghost Blows Out The Light’. Kyd’s latest feature ‘Tumbbad’, releasing worldwide and across
theaters in India this fall, is a dark thriller set in British colonial India produced by
Recyclewala Films (‘Ship of Theseus’, National Awards Winner for Best Feature Film).
Kyd’s journey as an artist is ever-evolving and reflects a penchant for experimentation: “I
love exploring new music styles and mixing different genres together,” says Kyd. “Finding a
unique approach adds depth, which can truly define the score and the game or film.”
