Michael Plowman was hired by Ubisoft Montreal to compose the score for Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, the first game in the franchise. To co-exist between the tension and the situations within the game, Michael created ambience and electronics fused with symphonic orchestration.
For the game's intro, Ubisoft had acquired the rights to use The Crystal Method song "Name of The Game", which is a radio edit of the original version.
The soundtrack was never officially released in any form, though fans have ripped and shared the games tracks online.
The TV series Combat Zone (2007) uses tracks from this soundtrack.
