Announcement: LIVE INTERVIEW With Grammy Award Winner Christopher Tin March 13th

By Bobby Blackwolf - March 9, 2011 at 09:53 AM

The Bobby Blackwolf Show welcomes Grammy Award Winner Christopher Tin with a live interview on Sunday, March 13th, at 8PM ET/5PM PT on All Games Radio. This live interview will then be available on The Bobby Blackwolf Show podcast feed several hours later.

Christopher Tin is best known to gamers as the man who wrote the main menu music from Sid Meier's Civilization IV. The piece, "Baba Yetu", features lyrics of the Lord's Prayer in Swahili. It was included as the first track on his new CD "Calling All Dawns" in 2009, which made it eligible for the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards. The album won Best Classical Crossover Album, with "Baba Yetu" winning Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocals. This marked the first time a piece of music originally written for a video game won a Grammy award, further legitimizing the industry.

He has also written music for video games Pirates of the Caribbean Online and Pocket God, films X2: X-Men United and Lilo and Stitch 2, and commercial campaigns for Puma, Verizon, and Nokia.
