Pieter Schlosser: "It's So Cool To Write Music For Destiny!"

The opportunity to write music for Destiny 2 and its subsequent expansions, including the just-released Forsaken is a dream come true for Pieter Schlosser. He says it was an incredible experience to have access to the themes that have become an iconic part of Destiny and "just go nuts with them!"


Pieter got to know Bungie's music director, Skye Lewin, when they were both attending the Berklee School of Music in Boston. They collaborated on a number of projects there, which Pieter says quickly get on board to assimilate the sound Skye, Michael Salvatori and the other composers at Bungie have crafted for the world of Destiny.

Bungie's music team works with the Nashville Scoring Orchestra and the Northwest Sinfonia and Chorale, and Pieter says it's really exciting to be able to write music for such talented musicians, and the massive sound of those orchestras and singers. And he's grateful that the music he and the other composers have written for Destiny has touched such a wide audience.
