Eshkeri’s contribution to the score include a new title theme, as well as the background music for the house and sim creation screens. In addition, he has also wrote over 140 short musical stings which accompany key emotional moments in the gameplay.

Eshkeri recorded the score with the London Metropolitan Orchestra. The multi-day recording session occurred at the famed Abbey Road Studios. The Sims 4 will be released for PC in the second half of the year.

A Brit currently living down under. Having recently completed my doctorate, I dedicate most of my time to researching how TB and related bacteria generate their energy. But I've also been working on websites related to game music since 2002. In that time, I have reviewed over a thousand albums and interviewed hundreds of musicians across the world. As the founder and webmaster of Game Music Online, I hope to build a cutting-edge, journalistic resource for all those soundtrack enthusiasts out there. In the process, I would love to further cultivate my passion for music, writing, and generally building things. Please enjoy the site and don't hesitate to say hello!
