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: "Mr. Lux: At Your Service"

This week's entry in The Vault is a departure from games into the wonderful world of animated film. It's a piece I wrote for a short created/produced/directed by Michael Jantze (creator of The Norm comic strip among other impressive things).

Mr Lux: At Your Service was a really fun collaboration for me, and the short went on to be an official selection at the Festival de Cannes' Short Film Corner in 2008.
