At long last Crystal Dynamics has revealed the identity of the composer for the upcoming Tomb Raider game. Jason Graves has scored dozens of video games, including the Dead Space series, for which he won a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) award. He has also worked extensively in film and television.

The latest episode of The Final Hours of Tomb Raider includes interviews with Graves and the TR audio team. As you'll see in the video, not only did Graves compose the new soundtrack, he also worked with Matt McConnell of McConnell Studios to build an amazing instrument (photo below) just for the task. Watch and listen here:

"The Instrument," a collaboration between composer Jason Graves and sculptor/designer Matt McConnell, was fabricated from steel, glass and fibreglass, and used to create the unique soundscapes featured in the upcoming Tomb Raider video game. For details visit
