Composer Interview: Gordy Haab

November 17, 2017

Gordy Haab has composed some great memorable scores in film, TV and video games. Gordy along with several other composers tackled the extremely popular Star Wars: The Old Republic video game which was a great stepping stone that lead to Gordy taking the reigns on Star Wars: Battlefront and now the recent followup Star Wars: Battlefront II. Gordy also recently scored Halo Wars 2. We dive into his background and how he found his path to film composing including a focus on his video game scoring approaches. We discuss the immense amount of pressure that comes with following in John Williams' footsteps for a AAA Star Wars game. Hear Gordy explain how the addition of a single-player campaign allowed him to venture into new territory in Battlefront II plus all the work that went into making it feel like a Star Wars experience.
