Writing Music for Video Games
Sarah Schachner is an American composer based in Los Angeles. Combining her dynamic talents as an accomplished multi-instrumentalist and synth artist, Schachner has emerged as a bold new force in film and video games scoring blockbuster titles such as ‘Call of Duty’ and ‘Assassin’s Creed’. Her diverse musical background has given her a unique approach, flowing naturally between the experimental and the classic. She often blends authentic folk string instruments with analog synths, electronic production, and orchestra.
Hailed as “A rising star in the soundtrack world” (Game Informer), Sarah’s evocative time-travelling and intergalactic cinematic scores span multiple genres, from the ancient Egyptian mysticism of Assassin’s Creed Origins to the futuristic sci-fi world of Anthem, and back to the present day with Infinity Ward’s highly anticipated ‘Modern Warfare’. She performed her alien-esque vocoder themes of Anthem live at the 2018 Game Awards.
Recent credits include: Call of Duty Modern Warfare (2019), Anthem (2018), Assassin’s Creed Origins (2017), Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, Assassin’s Creed Unity, Chef’s Table (Netflix), NASA Cassini Finale Music Project.
