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.


Taking us back to 2010, these pieces are from Microsoft and Frontier's Kinect launch title: Kinectimals. This was in collaboration with Peter McConnell, who was the game's lead composer. He asked me to come in and help out with some cutscene scoring, and some other general help with the score. It was a ton of fun playing around with the various excellent themes he wrote for the game, and then recording all of it with a live orchestra at the end of production.
