Graduate Wins GRAMMY for Star Wars Game Musical Score

By Gemma Cross


A Leeds Conservatoire graduate is celebrating after winning a GRAMMY award for his composition work on a critically-acclaimed Star Wars video game.

Since studying at Leeds Conservatoire Max has run his own production company, Metronomix Studios. In this profile he shared previously that the most vital skill he gained as a student was learning how to collaborate and that forming a true relationship with someone can prove fruitful for many years. Max has collaborated with established composer Stephen on multiple projects, from video games to TV series.

For Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, Max composed various parts of the score which is a staggering eight and a half hours in length. The recording took 28 days at the world-famous Abbey Road Studios.

"Just getting the nomination was really difficult because you're up against 200-plus other titles,” Max added to Altrincham Today.

"It feels like it's been a really long journey because this game is connected to the first Star Wars game which started in 2019, and I went to some test recordings in 2018. So to get to this point and get recognition from the Academy is amazing."
