The award-winning composer for Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, Winifred Phillips, might have to invest in more shelf space in her home. According to a press release published yesterday, Phillips’ main theme for the game won the Game Audio Network Guild Award at GDC late-last month in the category of “2012 Best Original Vocal Song – Choral.”
“Winning a Game Audio Network Guild Award is especially meaningful to me, because it is an award from my peers in the interactive audio industry—game composers, audio engineers, voice-over actors, audio directors, sound designers, and many more of the versatile artists that make game audio so special,” she told Inside Gaming. “I am tremendously honored and excited that my music from Assassin’s Creed III Liberation has been recognized by this incredibly talented professional community.”
Phillips has already won the Hollywood Music in Media Award for the game’s score, the Best Composer of 2012 award from GameMusic.net, and nominations from GameZone, IGN, and X-Play, so it’s not surprising that her work on the game’s music continues to earn recognition. But winning accolades won’t allow her to rest on her laurels: Phillips keeps bringing her talents to bear in the game industry. After working on the music for the LittleBigPlanet 2: Cross Controller DLC, she’s still got more work on the way.
“I’m currently working on two unannounced games, which I can’t reveal just yet,” she said. “I’m looking forward to talking more about them. This has been a very inspiring time in my career as a game composer.”
If you want to buy her critically acclaimed score, it’s available for purchase on iTunes right here. And don’t be surprised if we hear from Phillips again soon, either in the form of a new game score, or yet another award.
