Age of Conan - Music Feature: Knut Avenstroup

Posted Fri, Jun 09, 2006 by Awenyddion

The feature of the day for Age of Conan is a "getting to know you" piece on their music director Knut Avenstroup.

Want to get an insight into what goes into making the soundtrack and music for a game like Age of Conan? Wonder no longer as we grab some time with the man behind the music!

Could you please introduce yourself to the readers, what you do on the Conan project and how long you have been working on the game?

Hi everybody! My name is Knut Avenstroup Haugen. I create all the music for Age of Conan and I've been involved with this project since fall 2004.

What is it like to create the score for a gigantic game like Age of Conan?

It's a lot of fun! I've always been a Conan fan and a gamer, so basically, I've always wanted to work on a project like this. It's hugely exciting to be a part of bringing the world of Hyboria to life (and in my opinion it's the most captivating and convincing incarnation so far!). Of course, it's a monumental task, but I love writing music and on this project I'll be able to create music for a whole universe! It can't get much better than that :)
