Interview with RAGE composer, Rod Abernethy

Rod Abernethy

Award-winning composer and musician Rod Abernethy crafts authentic and memorable music scores for visual media including video games, advertising and television. His rich musical repertoire encompasses traditional acoustic and ethnic scores, unique hybrid soundtracks fusing electronic and organic elements, as well as dramatic music written for orchestra and choir.

Rod’s dynamic music productions enhance numerous high profile video games such as RAGE, TERA, ALPHA PROTOCOL, DEAD HEAD FRED, THE HOBBIT and RISE OF THE KASAI as well as promotional trailers for DARKSIDERS, WARHAWK, LINEAGE and PRINCE OF PERSIA. We were lucky enough to get a bit of Rod’s time for this exclusive GANG interview. Check out the interview HERE!
