Friday's Update Interview with Composer Knut Haugen

The Age of Conan Hyborian Adventures soundtrack is undoubtedly one of the best ever released with an MMORPG. The soundtrack is even available on Itunes for fans to purchase and download. To celebrate the release of this soundtrack Funcom's Friday Update is an interview with the composer of that great soundtrack Knut Haugen.

What is your musical background? Outside of Age of Conan, where would we have seen your work?

I started out studying the piano. I went to conservatories in Norway and in the Netherlands for a total of six years before I decided that what I really wanted to do was to write music. I studied a little bit of composition and arranging during my piano studies, but I really needed to learn more, so I went on to study composition and musicology for three years at the University of Oslo.
