Four-time Emmy award-winning musical composer Laura Karpman has joined Sony Online Entertainment Inc. (SOE), as a full time composer.
Technology and interactivity has always been central to the ways that I think and work in music, Karpman said. It is an enormous opportunity for me to join forces with Sony Online. I believe that together, we can push the envelope of interactive orchestral and electronic music in the world of online gaming.
Karpman recently scored Steven Spielbergs Emmy winning epic mini-series TAKEN and also composed the music for Sony Onlines critically acclaimed online game EVERQUEST II. Her compositions for EVERQUEST II were showcased as part of Video Games Live at the Hollywood Bowl, a night devoted to music from videogames.
