Inon penned the original musical score for THE LORD OF THE RINGS: WAR IN THE NORTH (Warner Bros.) video game, conducting and recording with the London Philharmonia Orchestra and the Pinewood Singers Choir at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London.

From ethereal and mystical to bombastic and lyrical, his original score for DRAGON AGE II befits the dramatic story and visuals and helps drive the heart-pounding action. Additionally, Inon and BioWare teamed up with the GRAMMY Awards’ Best New Artist nominee Florence + The Machine for an exclusive re-imagining of “I’m not calling you a liar” that you can only hear in-game in DRAGON AGE II. Produced by Inon and EA’s Steve Schnur, and mixed by Jack Joseph Puig – known for his work with U2, The Rolling Stones, No Doubt and Green Day, the song appears in-game as “I’m Not Calling You A Liar (Dragon Age II: Varric’s Theme)”.

Expressing an array of powerful emotions with eloquent dramatic orchestrations and stirring ethereal vocals, the thematic score and songs for DRAGON AGE: ORIGINS were crafted and woven to narrate the epic story.
