Thanks for some fantastic tracks!
To be honest I dont know if he would even work as efficiently as possible with 343's studio culture. Not that I really know anything about anything, but he always seemed more hands-on with a lot more than just composing back in the Bungie days, and seemed especcially collaborative with Joseph Staten.
I definitely feel like Halo set the bar with iconic music back in 2001 with the original theme. Since then music has been a massive part of Halo's design with incredible soundtracks like 2 and phenomenal pieces like The Trials from Halo 5. That's not to forget ODST and the jazz influence. There is a lot of great music there that steps outside the typical bombastic soundtracks from like a Call of Duty or Battlefield and gives Halo a lot of life.
Loud and bombastic has been just as much a part of Halo's audio identity as monks and strings have since the beginning. He definitely did some great work. It's possible he already did a ton of work on Infinite as well.
