Bio

Steve Kirk is a composer for interactive media. His work has been featured in TV, film and video games.

 

Notable projects include:

 

• A score for Thimbleweed Park, created by game designer Ron Gilbert (Monkey Island, Maniac Mansion), a dark, point-and-click adventure in the retro style of the classic Lucas Arts adventure games. The Kickstarter campaign for this project was hugely successful, and nearly doubled the asking production budget. Released in Spring 2017 for XBox One, Speed and PC platforms. Steve’s score is contemporary, haunting, and occasionally humorous. PC Gamer included Steve’s music in its article, “Listen to the best PC music of the year so far”, and Push Play awarded the score Top of the PS4 Pops in September of this year; “developer Terrible Toybox got an absolutely killer soundtrack from Steve Kirk…a cohesively eclectic delight…”

 

• “Voodoo Vince Remastered” – After 13 years, one of Steve’s first game projects, Voodoo Vince, gets a makeover. It includes over three hours of original music including a re-orchestrated piece from the original and a new piece in the same vein. Released April 18, 2017 on Xbox One and Windows platforms.

 

• Other projects include music for the iOS releases “Skurvy Skallywags” for Beep Games, “Cookie Jam” for SGN/Jam City, Cantina music for the Star Wars MMOL game “The Old Republic,” music for the Disney game version of “The Princess and the Frog,” and the FarmVille Theme for Zynga.
