MMO Jukebox Features Jeff Kurtenacker

Written by David "Scooter" Bass on June 26, 2012

Last week, our friends at Massively posted an "MMO Jukebox" feature, and we were pleased to see our Lead Composer Jeff Kurtenacker's work appear twice on the list, for Open Sea from Pirates of the Burning Sea and Justice Doesn't Always Wear a Badge from WildStar (which you can download here)!

Jeff has spoken before about how he creates great music, and you may recall when he met with the orchestra a few months ago to record pieces for the game. We're hearing he'll be visiting them again in the next few weeks to record new ones, and we love his work so much that we invaded his office this morning to talk with him about the Massively article as well as beg him to give us just one more track:

I was so honored and surprised when I saw this MMO Jukebox article. It's fantastic to have two of my pieces in such a great lineup of MMO music. That particular theme from Pirates of the Burning Sea is very special to me, and it's great to know it's still being recognized years later. I was thrilled to see the WildStar piece listed in there since the game hasn't been released yet! Very rewarding to know this WildStar music is being so well received. Composing music for the WildStar world is an absolute blast! The world is so rich and diverse that I feel like I'm just getting warmed up. The Community guys here at Carbine were so excited about this recognition that they busted in my office and asked me if I had any more music to share to celebrate the occasion... and of course I jumped at the chance to give everyone a listen at something new and different that helps accentuate the planet Nexus.

"The Cold Science of Supremacy" is the dark and somewhat sinister musical theme for the Eldan. The Eldan were a hyper-advanced civilization that mastered the secrets of creation, and stopped at nothing to advance the supremacy of their own race. The planet Nexus is filled with wondrous ancient Eldan technology that hints at how far the Eldan were willing to go in order to achieve their deifying scientific ambitions... but at what cost?
