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: What's Up Beelzebub?

Because it's coming on a day late, and because it's hard for me to choose just one, I'm including 3 tracks from What's Up Beelzebub?, the finale episode of Telltale Games' Sam & Max Beyond Space & Time (season 2). Twilight Eternal is one of my all time favorite compositions, just because it's so fun to groove along with. 4:59 is probably the most fun/peppy piece from the game, and the Fugue/Dies Iræ is a nice, dark arrangement of some of the main themes of the series, including the Office and Street themes. Enjoy this trifecta of Sam & Max tuneage. It will be a few months before we're back to Sam & Max here in The Vault.
