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: Kinectimals—Now With Bears!

This week's Vault installments are all tracks from Kinectimals: Now With Bears!

It was great fun to work on this project with Peter McConnell (the game's lead composer). Any time you collaborate with someone else there is so much to learn, and I feel like this doubly true with a composer like Peter. He's among the most talented and creative musicians in games.

He wrote so many fun little themes for this project in particular; it was wonderful to be entrusted with them, and to play around with different variations and adaptations.

I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I enjoyed making them!
