Designing Music NOW Video Podcast – Ep. 4 – Garry Schyman – Part 1





Garry Schyman is a rare composer who can claim the trifecta of success – Popular, Critical, and Artistic. His work is loved by fans of such games as the Bioshock Trilogy, Dante’s Inferno, Shadow of Mordor, and the Destroy All Humans Trilogy. With roots in film and television (he scored a significant chunk of Magnum PI and The A-Team with TV legends Mike Post and Pete Carpenter,) Schyman was one of the first composers to use a full orchestra in a video game for a CD Rom game called Voyeur in the 90’s. It took another ten years for the video game industry to advance enough to be able to handle full scores again, and they came knocking on Garry’s door for the game, “Destroy All Humans,” which had a distinctive and somewhat comedic 50’s TV style score. His audio director at THQ, Emily Ridgeway, went on to become the audio director at Irrational Games, makers of Bioshock and the rest was history.
