The Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory Soundtrack is a video game soundtrack produced by Amon Tobin and Jesper Kyd for Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. The official soundtrack released with 10 tracks.

Album InformationEdit

The album consists of a collection of songs that Tobin wrote for Ubisoft's video game, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Ubisoft was so pleased with Tobin's work that they decided to release the album several months ahead of the actual game.

Technically speaking, the album is not a soundtrack. In the game, each track is split into individual components that are independently layered over one another to correspond with a player's actions. Thus, none of the songs on the album would ever be heard in the game except in small fragments.

This album showcased the beginning Tobin's shift from collecting samples from vinyl records to recording his own samples. For the recording of Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory - Splinter Cell 3 Soundtrack, Tobin hired a live band whose members ranged from Mexican composer Nacho Mendez to Japanese flutist Eiji Miyake. Seminal composer Jesper Kyd was also hired to score the games cinematics.


  • "Kokubo Sosho Battle" is adapted from "Cougar Merkin", a B-side from Amon Tobin's "Verbal" single.
  • On 23 March 2005, the official game was released with bonus features that included a DVD version of the album. Along with 5.1 surround sound versions of each song, the DVD included a music video for "El Cargo" by Hexstatic and a bonus track called "Stolen".
  • A bootleg recording of the game began to circulate the web in mid-2005, which included extended versions of tracks, themes that did not appear in the retail soundtrack, and music from the game's cut scenes composed by Jesper Kyd.
  • This is the only Splinter Cell soundtrack released in retail, Michael McCann's soundtrack was released for free on his website but was never able to reach retail.
