  Frank Klepacki - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Frank Klepacki (born May 25, 1974) is a video game music composer best known for his work on the Command and Conquer series.
Frank Klepacki was raised by a family of musicians of Polish descent who played on the Las Vegas strip.
Klepacki is not seeking a record deal, citing a "horrible chain of steps to getting famous." Scathingly critical of the recording industry, he blames MTV for putting a pretty face on music and destroying the independent valuation of actual sound.

 Gamasutra - Game Audio Gallery: Frank Klepacki
Frank became the full-time composer for Westwood Studios in 1991, where he continued to push the limits of music in the game industry with one of the biggest franchises in the world, Command and Conquer.
Frank was one of the first to break ground with a music style that had cross-over commercial appeal in a computer game, and would have such an impact on the world, that the soundtrack alone was in high demand everywhere.
Frank has also released his own independent CDs with bands that have also been featured in games.

[Frank Klepacki] Yuri's Revenge will be more of the RA2 style, while Renegade will revisit old school C&C music, as far as E&B, I don't have a set path I'm following as of yet- the music is still in the infancy stage.
[Frank Klepacki] Well, it's not really about what I feel, it's just sort of a fact that music is always projecting the emotion for the player as it does in film, and game music has come to this type of a level now, as opposed to 10 years ago when it was just background tracks.
Klepacki for taking the time out of his schedule to sit down and spill his guts for us.

 theLogBook.com Interview - Frank Klepacki
Ever since the universe of Dune, created by Frank Herbert, first leaped onto the big screen in 1984, a handful of musicians have taken a crack at creating a distinctive sound for the barren and dangerous planet Arrakis, the warring parties trying to control its wealth in Spice, and the subsequent struggles that ensue.
Frank Klepacki had aspirations to create music from the very beginning - but his instrument of choice didn't exactly lend itself to song composition.
Klepacki was also a fixture in the Las Vegas retro-funk band Home Cookin', a band with an awe-inspiring full brass section, bringing the sound of 70s funk to some excellent original songs without leaning heavily on electronics.

 Interview with Frank Klepacki - Planet CnC
I asked CandC's own immortal beloved, Frank Klepacki, to say a few words about CandC in honour of the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the original Command and Conquer.
Frank: I was when it was released, and as the fans got to be experts I kinda backed off and played more against friends instead.
Frank: Yeah, we'd put all of us on speaker phone in the office as we played against each other (this concept is now called teamspeak - hehe) and we would love every minute of sneaking behind someones base and hearing them go "Damnit!" on the speaker phone.

 Command & Conquer Files - The Music of C&C
Frank Klepacki, the composer of the music initially included the voices, but it was decided that the voices sounded too much like actual unit selection sounds, and might confuse people, so the voices were edited out.
Frank's favorite track is the Fight, Win, Prevail, which starts orchestral and turns into a rock piece.
Not all of the Tiberian Sun were written by Frank Klepacki, but some were also written by Jarrid Mendelson, who also composed the Ordos music for Emperor: Battle for Dune.

The song fades and Klepacki shakes his head in wild disbelief.

 GameSpot Forums - Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars - Sounds like they're using Frank Klepacki's music in the new ...
This is interesting because I thought that a while back Klepacki said that EA never contacted him about doing music for Tiberium Wars.
Unfortunately, Frank Klepacki won't be writing any music for CandC 3.  They use his work in the trailer because EA owns CandC and all accessories to it, including the music.  Besides, Klepacki works for Petroglyph now, along with many other ex-Westwood employees.   
Frank Klepacki wrote the music for all the games created by the sadly deceased Westwood Studios, including Dune 2, C&C and Tiberian Sun, RA 1 and 2, and *probably* stuff like Blade Runner and Lands of Lore too, (I'm not sure about the last ones.)

I agree, this soundtrack is amazing and was created by three awesome musicians, Jarrid Mendelson, David Arkenstone and Frank Klepacki.
Frank Klepacki is my favorite as he also has done many of the command and conquer series games.
One thing that he has said about this soundtrack is that they used three composers to mix the mood and feel of each track.

Frank Herbert's 1963 Dune is to science fiction what The Lord of The Rings is to fantasy: the most popular, most influential and most critically-acclaimed novel in the genre.
It had never occurred to anyone that science fiction could offer the literary depth of Dostoevsky, the intricate "wheels within wheels" intrigues of Shakespeare or so deeply fulfill the heroic epic form behind Gilgamesh, The Odyssey, Le Morte D'Arthur, The Mahabharata, and Beowulf.

I'm sure every1 understands that (Frank klepacki made practically all tracks in the whole cnc series...except in generals where bill brown made the music (for USA atleast).)
Some of the Tiberian Sun music was co-authored by Frank K. and Jarrid M. I'm pretty sure that Frank did all the music for Renegade including Stomp.

A today’s game needs to create a believable atmosphere, which can only be build up if everything fits exactly to the game, otherwise the gamers will lose interest in playing the game.
