This year marks 15 years since Tomb Raider – The Angel of Darkness hit the shelves.
Next year is the 20th anniversary of my debut in the Tomb Raider franchise, composing the score for Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation.
To celebrate this, we are launching a crowdfunding campaign to produce a studio album featuring the music from Tomb Raider 4, 5 and 6.
This campaign has been organised entirely by a dedicated group of die-hard Tomb Raider fans and features world-class names from within the music industry. 
The album will not be a direct copy of the original Tomb Raider games’ scores, although it will remain faithful to them.
The music will be transformed and rearranged using techniques and personnel that were simply not available or within reach 15–20 years ago.
The original versions of my tracks will also be made available, properly remastered and beautifully presented, to tie-in with the new orchestral album.
