Midway Games has announced that Producer/Composer Chris Vrenna will
score the music for the upcoming Area 51, scheduled to ship
for the Xbox and PS2 in 2004.
Chris Vrenna is recognized as one of the top producer/composers in
the music business, having worked with a "who's who" of artists such
as U2, P.O.D., Weezer, David Bowie, Xzibit, Nelly Furtado and Rob
Zombie. Vrenna is also known as one of the founding members of Nine
Inch Nails and for his current band, Tweaker, which will be
releasing its second album, "2 a.m. Wake-Up Call," early next year.
"Vrenna's ability to create distinctive and powerful music will add
a unique dimension and energy to Area 51,"
said Mike Eglington, Senior Product Manager, Midway Europe.
"After seeing how dynamic the game was going to be, I was honored to
be asked to compose the score. It seemed like a great opportunity to
produce music as unique as the game itself,"
