Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Score Edit
Plowman was hired by Ubisoft Montreal to compose a minimal score as well as a fully orchestrated music for cinematics. Plowman was able to create a vivid musical score to accommodate the atmosphere of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell without the need of using a fully orchestrated presence within the game. Though the music is not available to the public, he does list four tracks on his website. Many fans have extracted the music files from the PC version of Splinter Cell and released it over the internet. The bootleg of the score contains all the music within the game including that of cinematics.
