Garry Schyman

From Bioshock to Middle-earth and beyond
In this interview, BAFTA-winning composer Garry Schyman gives exciting insights in his work on various video games. He has given a unique and acclaimed musical identity to the universe of BioShock (including BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite) and entered the fantasy world of Tolkien for the adventure game Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Middle-earth: Shadow of War. Garry’s most recent games music release includes the virtual reality Twilight Zone inspired game Torn due out this spring and he will also talk about that new experience.

From the spare violins of a city beneath the sea to the choral hosannahs of hell and a comically symphonic alien Armageddon, Garry Schyman has proven himself as one of the most impressive scoring voices in the genre of videogame music with his acclaimed scores for such series as “BioShock,” “Dante’s Inferno” and “Destroy All Humans!” His video game scores have brought him critical acclaim and industry recognition, including the Outstanding Achievement in Original Music Composition from the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences, the Best Original Score from the Spike TV Games Awards for “BioShock” and Game Audio Network Guild awards for “BioShock,” as well as their nominations for “Destroy All Humans!” and “Destroy All Humans! 2”
