Cris Velasco, also known as Cris Liesch, is an American video game and film composer.
In 2000, Velasco wrote his first game soundtrack for Gunman Chronicles, a first-person shooter. Then, in 2004, he composed music for the Battlestar Galactica series. In 2005, he was featured in the God of War video game series. Cris wrote four tracks on the God of War, four on the God of War II, and five on the God of War III. In 2009, Velasco collaborated with another composer Sascha Dikiciyan and wrote a soundtrack for the game Prototype.
After that, he continued making soundtracks for acclaimed games like Terminator 3: Redemption, TMNT, Mass Effect series, God of War series, Anderson's Cross, Company of Heroes 2, Haze, Splinter Cell: Double Agent, and Mortal Combat series. Apart from the gaming industry, Velasco also writes soundtracks for commercials and movies. He states that gaming is completely different as he has to “compose the music in a way that makes it less obvious there's only a two-minute cue looping.”
