Mini Bio (1)

Fabian Del Priore is also known as "Rapture" and "tHE oPERATOR" in the PC Demo music scene. He has spent his entire life making music. After taking private piano lessons from 1988 - 1998, he is now an accomplished pianist. In 1993, he discovered a tracker program called Fast Tracker II on the PC and began tracking mod music. Over the years, he has become an established and critically acclaimed musician. But it was not until the age of 16 that his career as a professional game musician started; Fabian sent a demo tape to the "Chris Huelsbeck Media Production". Chris Huelsbeck is a well-known game musician and the music director of Factor 5 in San Francisco. Huelsbeck liked Fabian's music so much that he forwarded the demo tape to "Vision Media Engineering GmbH", a German software company. Subsequently, Fabian became a freelancer, composer, sound designer and permanent member of Vision. At the age of 17 he already composed and released his first soundtrack on CD, Extreme Assault (1997) (together with Chris), which is a Copter-Shoot-em-Up-Game developed by Bluebyte in 1997. Fabian was gradually involved in several other projects as well, like the Worms 2 soundtrack by Bjorn Lynne, the Menateus Soundtrack for the Expo 2000 exhibition in Hannover, Germany, the Sound FX for several interactive multimedia presentations and games such as "Fighters for Life" by Topware and "X- Beyond the Frontier" by Egosoft to name a few. He has since spent the money earned on building a semi-professional midi/audio production studio. After graduating from high school (with a school leaving examination called "Abitur" in Germany), he plans to write music for TV and cinema commercials, TV shows and movies as well as pursuing his ambitions to score soundtracks for big Hollywood movies. Of course, we'll be hearing a lot more of his work on future games too.
