Star Wars: Battlefront (2015)


Composer Samuel Joseph Smythe's 3rd Star Wars video game project

I'm beyond honored to be able to say that I've now written music for EA Game's newest Star Wars game series, Star Wars: Battlefront. Not only did I get to write on this incredible game with my buddy, composer Gordy Haab, but, get this: we went to London to record the score with the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios!


What a legendary recording studio with such a legendary orchestra. Walking the halls into Studio 1 at Abbey Road I caught a glimpse of the poster for Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. And Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (another personal fav.) These were some of the greats that were recorded in the very studio I was about to walk into with the very same orchestra. With my scores in hand I entered the control room HOPING everything was on the page correctly. And then one of the greatest experiences in my career began.
