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.

Mr. Lux: At Your Service

For something different this week, I've decided to feature a piece of music that I wrote for an animated short film that was produced by Jantze Studios, written/directed by Michael Jantze (creator of the Sunday morning comic "The Norm").

The film, Mr. Lux: At Your Service, was an official selection at the 2008 Cannes Short Film Corner.

This was a really fun collaboration and a nice, linear change from my usual interactive, looping tunes. The retro style was right in my wheelhouse, and Michael Jantze is a top notch director.

I've included the film below, for those who have never seen it and are curious. The animation was done by Kelly McNutt and the sound design by Jory Prum.
