Martin O’Donnell is the wonderful musician who put music to the Halo games and won many awards for it. Today it has been announced that Bungie has terminated O’Donnell without cause on the 11th of April.
O’Donnell’s career began with making music for TV and radio before he started working on games. In 1997 his company, TotalAudio, did sound work for the 1997 game Riven. Later he worked on Bungie’s game Oni and was then hired to work on a secret project which was actually Halo: Combat Evolved. O’Donnell joined Bungie just a few days before Microsoft bought the company and has created the beautiful music in every Halo game up until Reach. He has won many awards for his composing and is considered one of the best video game musicians out there.
