Award-winning composer Stephanie Economou gives insight into her quickly evolving career and experiences in both the game music and film music industry. Her score for Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Dawn of War Ragnarök was awarded the very first Grammy Award for Best Score Soundtrack for Video Games and Other Interactive Media and is considered one of the finest game soundtracks of the past years. Scoring both games and films, she perfectly understands the peculiarities of both artforms and how to use these to her advantage musically.
