Skyrim composer pissed at concert that has 'nothing to do with him'

Set to debut in London next month

There's a pretty long lineage of game composers falling out with major companies, but this is a new one. Recently, Bethesda announced a London concert for Skyrim, to celebrate the release of the Special Edition of the game. It'll take place on November 16 at the London Palladium.

All good right? Well, no. Taking to Facebook, original composer Jeremy Soule announced that he wasn't even aware of the concert until it was announced. "This is the first I've heard of it," he claims. "For the record, this concert has nothing to do with me, nor are they using any of my original scores...they had to transcribe whatever notation they are performing by ear from the recordings. This is a flawed process as transcriptions are always fraught with errors."

Soule goes on to say that he doesn't endorse the concert and to "be wary" of attending it. Since tickets go on sale tomorrow at 10AM UK time, it's a warning worth pondering, at least. We've reached out to Bethesda for comment to see what led to the communication breakdown.
