Garry Schyman

Evocative motifs, epic themes, aleatoric dissonance or apocalyptic intensity: composer Garry Schyman explores a stunning spectrum of sonic possibilities. The creator of music for the multiple award-winning video game BioShock, he has emerged as one of the medium’s foremost composers.

Garry studied composition at the University of Southern California and later, privately with the renowned composer George Tremblay. Just out of the university he was then employed by the legendary Mike Post and Pete Carpenter organization where he worked on the team’s roster of top rated series.

Garry believes that a command of multiple styles is an essential attribute for a composer. “Many styles are about hiring great players who can nail it. It’s the more classically oriented orchestral music that requires the depth of experience. You can’t fake that.”
