Music is so very important to producers and directors – they need it to successfully convey the exact precise feeling and emotion their work deserves. Frederick realizes this intrinsically and it is his firm intention to assist in this process by providing music with the highest production values possible. Frederick built a world-class studio consisting of the finest mixing and mastering equipment available.

Frederick Russ was involved in the Transformers Fall of Cybertron Game project. The action score has turned out to be one of the most celebrated scores in action music history. Check out the following reviews:

“…Fantastic music sets a solid mood…” http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/tv-movies/video-game-review-transformers-fall-cybertron-article-1.1146167

“…The music is excellent, typical of Transformers standards…” http://www.gamezone.com/products/transformers-fall-of-cybertron/reviews/transformers-fall-of-cybertron-review

“…The score suits the action-movie vibe…” http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/08/21/transformers-fall-of-cybertron-review

“…Combine the story and gameplay with an intense orchestral soundtrack (that can rival any Hollywood movie score)…” http://provengamer.com/2012/08/30/transformers-fall-of-cybertron-review/

“…The game’s sound design aims to deliver an action blockbuster soundtrack and it succeeds. The game is wall to wall action and it sounds awesome, with explosive power from start to finish…” http://blurayauthority.com/game/transformers-fall-of-cybertron-x-box-360/

“…On the soundtrack, the music accompanying is doing good work, emphasizing the appropriate intensity in the most tense moments (when Cliffjumper moves to sneak behind enemies) and that the fury of battles becomes wider. We must admit that on this front it’s benefited, and the songs are wisely used and not-as often happens-glued listlessly…” http://singjugames.com/2012/08/29/review-transformers-fall-of-cybertron-pc-version/

“…Conflict spread out across the land. Combine that with the game’s incredible soundtrack, and you get the true atmosphere of a world slowly being destroyed by conflict…” http://www.bigredbarrel.com/2012/08/review-transformers-fall-of-cybertron/

“… An epic orchestral soundtrack brings some real gravitas to Fall of Cybertron…” http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/transformers-fall-of-cybertron/review/

“…Lastly the music … tends to have a good remix of 80?s style rock vibe that fits the series perfectly…” http://www.hbhud.com/2012/08/28/review-of-transformers-fall-of-cybertron/

“…Likewise, the audio really excels, between the orchestrated musical score and the voice acting…” http://www.technewsdaily.com/4737-transformers-fall-of-cybertron-is-a-must-for-fans.html

“…The presentation is top notch, with excellent sound design and a suitably epic music score…” http://www.g4tv.com/games/xbox-360/65767/transformers-fall-of-cybertron/review/

“…The score almost overshadows the events surrounding it. This is not a bad thing. It simply balances things out. I feel like bigger things are at stake because the music tells me so…” http://www.psnation.org/2012/08/31/review-transformers-fall-of-cybertron-ps3/

“…The music is simply epic and just like that of the big screen movies…” http://canadianonlinegamers.com/review/transformers-fall-of-cyberton-xbox-360-review/

“…Musical themes dominate the soundtrack…” http://www.gameinformer.com/games/transformers_fall_of_cybertron/b/xbox360/archive/2012/08/21/transformers-fall-of-cybertron-review-variety-in-all-things.aspx

“…The original music is also outstanding. The core level music really sets the tone while boss battles and epic moments are accompanied by tracks that feel right out of a big budget movie…” http://www.ztgd.com/reviews/transformers-fall-of-cybertron/

“…The soundtrack for the game also provides a nice accent to things overall, adding a nice touch to each cinematic…” http://www.examiner.com/review/transformers-fall-of-cybertron-review

“…A unique universe, bolstered by the excellent voice-acting and stirring soundtrack…” http://www.lazygamer.net/xbox-360/transformers-fall-of-cybertron-review-more-than-meets-the-eye/

“… Awesome sound and Music … The music is nothing short of spectacular, slipping into the background when necessary and then rising to the occasion for blazing firefights and an epic finale you won’t soon forget…” http://n4g.com/news/1072286/gc-transformers-fall-of-cybertron-review

“…the music is always on point… http://www.psxextreme.com/ps3-reviews/611.html

“…Fall of Cybertron amounts to the best Transformers story that we’ve seen since the earliest days of the franchise. It’s entirely a G1 reboot, right down to the cackle-inducing music that plays over the game’s end credits. If you have fond memories of running home from school to catch afternoon episodes of Transformers, this is a walk down memory lane that you shouldn’t ignore…” http://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/transformers-fall-of-cybertron-review/

“…It must be said as well that one of the games high points has to be its soundtrack. From the moment it loads up the epic score will set the tone of what this game is about, it’s serious but fun and the great humour in some of the games dialogue conveys this. Couple this with some of the best voice acting you will hear in a game this year thanks to the likes of Peter Cullen (Optimus Prime) and Fred Tatasciore (Megatron), you have finished off exactly what the series needed – a faithful and fun Transformers video game…” http://www.gamedot.co.uk/2012/09/06/transformers-fall-of-cybertron-review/

Aside from composing full time, Frederick created a large online community for virtual instrument composers called V.I. Control Forum as a way for composers from all backgrounds and locations to congregate, network and generally have a cool place to hang out.


Frederick also wrote an ongoing column series for Virtual Instruments Magazine called MIDI Mockup Microscope where prolific composers who work in film, television and games were interviewed.

Frederick is an avid guitar player and uses that with his main productions. He is also a beta tester for Waves Plugins, TruPiano & Audiobro LASS..
