David Nottingham, the creative director behind the side-scrolling stealth game CounterSpy, said that the music of Lalo Schifrin was a major influence. Lalo Schifrin is an Argentine pianist and composer, best known for, ‘Theme from Mission: Impossible‘. David shared this and a list of other influential spy songs with CounterSpy’s composer Jesse Harlin as he was getting started on the soundtrack.
David Nottingham told Playstation Blog, “Jesse did an amazing job creating an original score that paid homage to all those great espionage theme scores. Jesse was someone else I had worked with before at LucasArts.”
