Jon On the Disintegration Score: “I wanted to capture both the fragility and hopefulness of the human spirit,” explains composer Jon Everist. “The solo piano motif propels the piece to a crescendo with the rest of the orchestra where our heroic theme is revealed, representing the power and ingenuity of humanity coming together for a common good. This is the theme of the resistance.”
“Jon Everist is an American video game and film composer from Seattle, Washington. He first gained notoriety with his award-winning score for Shadowrun: Hong Kong (2015) and continues to work with longtime collaborator Harebrained Schemes and Paradox Interactive to produce soundtracks for their games. His most recent score for BATTLETECH (2018) was nominated for “Best Video Game Score of 2018″ at the 34th Annual ASCAP Screen Music Awards and won honors at the 2019 Jerry Goldsmith Awards for Best Video Game Score.”
