Dexter and Silent Hill: Downpour composer Daniel Licht has released a live acoustic version of “Honor For All”, which is a track from the critically acclaimed video game Dishonored. The video features Licht along with his brother Jon Licht, Norman Kim, and Paul Haapaniemi trading off duties on several different instruments. Edited together, it’s a very fun and interesting take on the original track. Give it a listen below!
And so another year comes to a close. 2012, just like any other year, you had your gems and you had your flops when it came to album releases. For this article, I’d like to give you my Top 10 albums of 2012 as well as several honorable mentions that didn’t exactly make the cut but were too good to leave unmentioned. So, read on to see my Top 10 Albums Of 2012!
Of course this happens AFTER I leave Los Angeles… Composer Daniel Licht will be performing selections from his various works, including Dexter, Silent Hill: Downpour (review), Thinner, Hellraiser: Bloodline, and more live at the Largo at the Coronet in Los Angeles, CA. Billed as ‘Music Of The Macabre, the event is $25 and is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 29th. There are also surprise guests slated to show up, so you’ll definitely get your ‘treat’ in advance this Halloween. Tickets can be purchased here.
Personally, I wouldn’t miss this opportunity for the world. Licht’s music is nothing short of incredible and the opportunity to see it live is incredibly rare. Also, what better way to kick off Halloween week? You can watch footage of Licht’s previous Largo concert below.

Earlier this year, at the Largo Concert Theater in Los Angeles, California, composer Daniel Licht (Silent Hill: Downpour) conducted a small orchestra in performances of pieces from the hit TV show Dexter, of which he is the composer. It’s amazing to watch as Licht jumps from one instrument to another, creating some otherworldly sounds. Check out video footage of the concert below.
The other night, I beat Silent Hill: Downpour. For those of you who are sitting back and scratching your head wondering, “Didn’t this game come out a few months ago?”, you would be right. But here’s what happened. I bought Silent Hill: Downpour and managed to squeeze in a few hours. Then, the following week, I bought Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, brought it home, popped it into my Xbox and BAM! Dead Xbox.
So, for a few months, I was without an Xbox 360 and was suffering every moment of this long and unexpected video game exile. It got to the point where I couldn’t take it anymore. I caved, bought an Xbox, and dived immediately into the world of…..Minecraft. Yeah, I had to face some creepers to get my hands used to the 360 controller once again. And after building a badass world with TJ (and a little bit with Adam, even though he likes to destroy other people’s creations), I got my mitts all set again. I was ready to enter that foggy world once again! READ MORE
Well, I just stumbled across yet another reason why I wished I lived in/near Los Angeles. Composer Daniel Licht will be performing music from Dexter and Silent Hill: Downpour as well as the premiere of music from Silent Hill: Book Of Memories during which long time Silent Hill vocalist Mary Elizabeth McGlynn will also perform. There will be several special guest performers and Michael C. Hall, Dexter himself, will be present at the concert. The event will take place June 10th at Largo At The Coronet. Doors are at 7pm and the show begins at 8pm. You can buy tickets for the event here. If I could go to this show, you better believe that I’d be in the front row with the biggest grin on my face.
A new video has surfaced of composer Daniel Licht discussing some new sounds and instruments that he’s using for Dexter: Season Five. Here’s the kicker: he uses actual surgical instruments and tools! Watch the video after the jump to see how he uses scalpels, old poison bottles, and more.
