Bio

Sean Beeson is a young award-winning media composer featured primarily within the video game industry. He is also the founder and owner of Sean Beeson Studios LLC located in Westerville, Ohio, and is represented by Bob Rice of Four Bars Intertainment. Sean is both a video game composer and a general media composer. His characteristic sound can be heard across many video game systems and medias from XBOX 360, Wii, and casual PC/Mac games to television, films, both animated and live-action, and film trailers.

Sean’s most recent work can be heard in Disney’s revolutionary MMO Pixie Hollow video game. He also composed Big Fish Games’ Hidden Expedition: Amazon, the first casual game to feature a full-length live-orchestral soundtrack. Other recent credits include Assault Heroes 2 (360), Eternity’s Child (Steam-PC/Wii) and the casual games Planet Busters, Fairway Solitaire, and Hoyle’s Enchanted Puzzles.

Although the majority of Sean’s pieces are composed for video games, he has also successfully composed music for various independent films and other media. Two of these films, Fused and Just One Thing, were nominated for BAFTA’s “60-Seconds of Fame” Award. An animated short, Emelia, was the #1 downloaded iTunes short film during a span in late 2006.

Outside of composing, Sean prefers to be active within the online video game composing community. He is currently the Secretary and Resource Manager of the Game Audio Network Guild (G.A.N.G.) and was a panelist at the 2008 Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco. At the 2008 G.A.N.G. Awards, Sean was recognized with the “Distinguished Service Award” for his previous contributions as Resource Manager.

Sean is also active within the local music community as he takes pride in challenging himself and inspiring other young media composers. A graduate from Capital University in 2007 with a Bachelor’s of Music in Composition, he is now on the other side of the desk teaching the craft of media composing. Sean is currently serving as an adjunct professor at the renowned Conservatory of Music for his alma mater located in Columbus, Ohio.

In addition to being a media composer, Sean is also a skilled producer, engineer and programmer of sample libraries. Sean is also the creator of the commercially successful libraries TAIKO and Action Drums: Taiko Edition, both published by Nine-Volt Audio available for purchase worldwide.

During his spare time, Sean enjoys cooking, video gaming, cryptozoology, playing keyboard in St. Paul’s Catholic Church Praise & Worship Band, and spending time with his friends and family.
