Nathan circa 2000

Nathan McCree composed the music (with Martin Iveson[1]) for Tomb Raiders I, II and III. He has been heralded as one of the best composers in the computer games industry.

Nathan's musical themes are still used in Tomb Raider games to this day, and Tomb Raider III has been described as one of the "best sounding computer game(s)"[2]. He composed the solo oboe tune that was the original Tomb Raider theme, whilst his use of "foleys" or musical cues, such as the marimba glissando heard whenever Lara found a secret in Tomb Raider added greatly to the atmosphere of the Classic Core Design games. The rhythmic "cellos followed by glockenspiel" music heard when the Tyrannosaurus Rex appeared during TR1 helped to make that scene one of the most memorable moments ever for Tomb Raider players[3].

He also did the voice over for the monk in St. Francis' Folly[4].
