    Composer Inon Zur was recently interviewed by RPGDot about his work on Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal. With a history of great soundtracks shadowing his work, particularly the score of Icewind Dale, Zur has a lot to live up to.

    RPGDot: What were your feelings on composing the soundtrack of TOB? Any track, you especially like or any memorable scene while composing them?

    Inon Zur: Composing for TOB was a serious challenge for me, working on a game that is already known and much expected, since it was preceded by 2 successful previous versions, with a strong musical content. I like the Melissan music and The Pocket Plane cue best of all.

    RPGDot: Michael Hoenig did the music on BG 1 & 2 - did his work inspire you or was it more of a burden? Did you use some of the original BG tunes in the TOB themes?

    Inon Zur: I did not use any of the previous tunes from BG 1 & 2, although I tried to stay as close as I could to the style Michael Hoenig used in order to keep the homogeneity of the game music.
