H-Pi joins G4F Talents!

H-PiH-Pi (Henri-Pierre Pellegrin), who has previously composed for G4F, now joins the G4F Talents team.

H-Pi has already created numerous OSTs to video games. His most recent and famous works range from Styx : Master of Shadows to Trackmania via Monster & Commander, Regalia: Of Men And Monarchs and Aarklash Legacy. He has also worked on many mobile projects in a variety of genres that demonstrate the diversity of musical styles that make up his universe.

His career has also featured many TV projects including the short program “1 jour, 1 question” (1 day, 1 question) and other kids’ shows on French TV. He also plays bass and synthesizer in several related projects including the “Lokurah” parisian MetalCore band where he plays the bass live and his YouTube channel, Bass of Duty, where he rearranges his cult tracks from video games for the electric bass!

2017 has got off to a great start for H-Pi with two new OSTs that will soon be released. The sequel to the first Styx adventure, Styx: Shards of Darkness, will be available in March, and the RPG from the studio Pixelated Milk, Regalia: Of Men And Monarchs, will also be available this year (listen to a snippet of the music to Regalia here). The OST will therefore be available ahead of the game release along with some new “making of” videos. Stay tuned!
