Inon Zur has composed soundtracks for blockbuster video game series like Fallout and Dragon Age.

Inon Zur has scored films, TV series, and more than 50 video games!

Zur says he didn't know much about the field when he first became interested in video game scoring in the 1990s. Now, his score for Syberia: The World Before is up for Grammy consideration.

We talked to Zur to learn more about his work and compositional influences.
