Penka Kouneva's music has been called "fantastic" (Billboard) and "breath-taking" (NPR). Her studio credits include Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands game (with Steve Jablonsky), The Mummy VR game, and the $30M multimedia exhibit Heroes and Legends at the Kennedy Space Center. With life-long passion for SciFi and fantasy, she was thrilled to co-score with Joe Kraemer the episodic TV show Pandora on the CW network.
