The last three years have included several major releases for composer Winifred Phillips. She composed music for the ever-adorable LittleBigPlanet 3, as well as Assassin's Creed III: Liberation. One involves a happy, endearing, knitted child running around with friends; the other features a revenge-hungry assassin, bent on changing the politics of 18th-century New Orleans.
Of particular note for its cleverness and musical skill is LittleBigPlanet 3's The Ziggurat. Featuring more than 12 voices (all performed by Winifred herself), it's a nearly five-minute-long fugue. If you're unfamiliar with musical terms, that translates to "she pulled off something pretty nuts."
