Frank Klepacki

If you are a fan of the Command & Conquer series, and the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Frank's albums are a must have for your collection.

Frank Klepacki has worked on video game titles for most of the top publishers in the industry including WESTWOOD STUDIOS, LUCASARTS, ELECTRONIC ARTS, SEGA, UBI SOFT, DISNEY, SSI, HASBRO, and VIRGIN INTERACTIVE. Currently, he is the Audio Director for PETROGLYPH. He has composed music for a variety of game genres and musical styles. In addition, he has contributed to full audio direction, top sound design, voice acting, and had music contracted and licensed for major TV network shows.

In 1992, Klepacki scored the first Real Time Strategy in history, Dune II. In 1995, he pushed the limits of music in the game industry in what would become one of the biggest game franchises, COMMAND & CONQUER. The C&C soundtrack was among the first to break ground with a music style that had cross-over commercial appeal in a computer game that would merit it’s own stand alone soundtrack. Moreover, he won the PC Gamer award for Best Game Soundtrack for C&C: RED ALERT, over Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) for Quake.

By the year 2000, Frank moved into television and film, licensing music for HBO and ABC. He released several independant albums via website and all digital distribution channels. Since 2003, he has been a regularly featured recording artist on the ULTIMATE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP programs on Pay-Per-View, Spike TV, and FOX Sports. In 2007, he scored entire shows for HDNET FIGHTS and INSIDE MMA, and since 2011-present, has had recurring music placements in several dozen shows including Americas Got Talent, Top Gear, and Pawn Stars.

From 2008-2011, Klepacki was the touring drummer for The Family Stone, featuring original rock & roll hall of fame inductee members of Sly & The Family Stone, Jerry Martini and Cynthia Robinson. He also guest performs as a guitarist and composer with symphonys around the world for the shows Video Games Live and Games In Concert.

Since 2004, Klepacki has been the full-time Audio Director at PETROGLYPH, the developer of STAR WARS: EMPIRE AT WAR, and their upcoming game, END OF NATIONS.
