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!

Sam & Max Beyond Space & Time: Jürgen's Lair Suite

Night of the Raving Dead gave the world Jürgen the emo vampire. This is the piece music that accompanies the hidden lair deep within his zombie nightclub. It builds, and builds, and builds, and builds some more. I had a lot of fun making this one, and was heavily influenced by folks like the Boban Marković Orkestar and DJ Typsy Gypsy (specifically his Balkan Hot Step mega mixes). If you haven't ever heard their stuff, it's really fantastic.
