Tom SALTA Biography

BAFTA-nominated and ASCAP award-winning composer Tom Salta is one of the most versatile and prolific music artists/producers working in film, television, advertising, and video games. Renowned for crafting emotionally engaging soundtracks for multimedia, Salta has received widespread industry acclaim for his world-class produced hybrid scores featured in film, television, and video games such as Arkane Studios’ DEATHLOOP, Machine Games’ WOLFENSTEIN: Youngblood & Cyberpilot, Microsoft’s iconic HALO series (Best Original Soundtrack Award at Game Developers Conference), Ubisoft’s PRINCE OF PERSIA: The Forgotten Sands and RED STEEL (IGN Award for Best Original Score), Tom Clancy’s GHOST RECON and H.A.W.X series, as well as the epic theme music for the record-breaking online multiplayer game PLAYERUNKNOWN’s BATTLEGROUNDS, which has sold in excess of 70 million units with over 700 million players. 


Most recently, Tom was the lead composer for the smash hit video game of the year contender DEATHLOOP from Arkane Studios and Bethesda Softworks. Described as “An absolute banger of a soundtrack that amplifies action and accentuates the tension” (GameSpot) and “A fantastic soundtrack that keeps the vibe electric” (Shacknews), the music plays a foundational role in transporting the player into this richly artistic world and supports the wide range of action with a late ‘60s inspired hybrid score, ranging from mysterious ambiances to psychedelic and progressive rock, to swing band and cinematic orchestral music. As Arkane Studios’ audio director Michel Trémouiller describes, “Moving from a hazy, mysterious atmosphere to palpable tension to the most exhilarating fights, Tom’s original score carries Deathloop‘s gameplay with great dynamism and vivacity. From the ground up, Blackreef Island owes much of its identity to Tom’s themes and original compositions created with a unique vision and distinctive flair.”
