Kazuma Jinnouchi @kazjin2612
 After an amazing 7-year ride, today is my last day at 343 Industries as an in-house composer. I'm becoming a freelancer and starting a new chapter of my adventure. HUGE thank you to @Halo and the community for letting me do what I love! I wouldn't be what I am without you.

What a shame, he was one of the last big names at 343i who was actually competent.

I see it as more of a good thing, now he can write something neither linked to Halo, nor limited by it.

from what I understand he was the composer for Guns of The Patriots before so it's not like Halo was ever his only thing.

Neil Davidge is infinitely better, anyway.

The only issue he had was that the music he did didn't "feel" like Halo, and that the music itself was used pretty terribly in-game (which isn't the his fault, afaik). It was mixed pretty horribly in the game audio so that some of the tracks were almost impossible to hear and had a lot of really annoying repeated tracks in missions and gameplay experiences that weren't very well designed. To Galaxy is one of my favourite songs from the series, but it was pretty much ruined by being the Spartan Ops/ War Games menu music.

In a vaccuum, songs like This Armour, Swamp, Sacrifice and To Galaxy (Extended) are some of my favourites in the series' collective OSTs as a whole and IMO way better than 117 or Arrival - I think those two only ever get recognition because they're the only time the game ever really uses the music effectively. It's such a shame that the music was undermined by crap usage in-game.

I don't know who that is but less anime in anything is always a good sign

I've always felt like this was the dumbest thing people could say, because what "feels" like Halo is arbitrary and impossible to determine. Beyond that, Halo 4 is a very different game narratively to the original 3, and it needed a new sound to establish that.

Davidge's score was incredibly inspired and set the tone perfectly for 343's vision. Keep in mind this was when 343 still had balls and aritistic integrity before trying to appease Original Trilogy faggots. I still maintain that Halo 4 has the best campaign of all Halo games in terms of overall artistic merit.

It was used pretty terribly in-game for sure, but I can't really levy that against him.

For me, the overuse of synths and electronic elements (despite those being some of my favourite songs) did it. Also, only like one song actually had the Halo theme in it.

It doesn't stop 4 from being one of my favourote OSTs but it feels very different to the Marty stuff or even Halo 5.
