Jared Emerson-Johnson

I make music for video games.

Hi! I'm Jared Emerson-Johnson.

Since 2002 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 Walking Dead or Wolf Among Us series from Telltale Games, or perhaps you have found yourself here because of my more recent work on Batman, Guardians of the Galaxy, or Tales From The Borderlands.

Regardless of what initially brought you here, welcome! I hope I can provide you with whatever you're looking for—if not, please feel free to reach out and ask!

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.
