Bungie's latest Desiny 2 expansion, Shadowkeep, brings Guardians back to the Moon, only to discover that it's plagued by terrifying living nightmares, and long-vanquished enemies that need to be conquered again. Composers Mike Salvatori and Skye Lewin told me that not only did they write some of the most terrifying music ever for Destiny, but they blended in subtle hints of sorrow and brash heroic moments as well.

The opportunity to write music for Destiny 2 and its subsequent expansions, including the just-released Forsaken is a dream come true for Pieter Schlosser. He says it was an incredible experience to have access to the themes that have become an iconic part of Destiny and "just go nuts with them!"

Once again the world of the Guardians experiences tragedy with the death of the beloved character Cayde-6 in Destiny's newest expansion, Forsaken, by Bungie. Composer Michael Salvatori says that although the  story of Forsaken is tragic, the possiblities offered for revenge and grief were fertile ideas for him and the rest of the music team.

As Bungie was scaling up the many new worlds players visit in Destiny 2, it became clear very fast that the music team needed a better and faster way of implementing  the hours of music needed to enhance all the experiences players have exploring, in missions and strikes, and in the Crucible. 

As Destiny, the epic adventure from Bungie enters its third year with the Rise of Iron expansion, composer Mike Salvatori says the music has expanded as well, to over 250 minutes of new material, written along with Skye Lewin and C. Paul Johnson.  The main theme is especially compelling, and as Mike explains it was kind of like a "gift from the universe!"
