Jared Emerson-Johnson

I make music for video games.

Hi there. I'm Jared Emerson-Johnson. For the past decade or so I've been the music man at Bay Area Sound—writing music, creating sound design, directing voiceover and acting in all sorts of games and occasionally in other media.

You may know me from my scores to the Sam & Max series from Telltale Games, or perhaps you have found yourself here because of my more recent work on The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, Tales From the Borderlands, and/or Game of Thrones (also from Telltale).

Regardless of what brought you here, welcome! I hope I can provide you with whatever you're looking for.

The Vault: Moonscape

For the final installment of Sam & Max Save the World's entries to The Vault, I've selected "Moonscape."

Combing through the Bright Side of the Moon track list, it was a close toss-up between featuring this piece or featuring the World of Max song. In the end I favored this one, since I think it is oft overlooked, and I've always had a fondness for it. Also, knowing where the sound of the soundtracks go after season one, it also stands out to me as a bit of a turning point—a widening of the sound of the music in the games.

Enjoy, and tune back in next week for more back catalog music!
