Hey everyone - finally, slowly getting over the flu and back at the Chicago Music Dealers HQ. Monday not only means extra coffee, slow days, and the worst day of the week – it also means my Music Dealers featured artist of the week. This week I figured I would switch it up and choose a composer / sound designer – Duane Decker. Duane has many different sounds and is very good at what he does. He has an amazing resume that includes computer, console & location based games and platforms, film, cinema, video, and more.
He has composed and produced over 640 published music tracks totaling more than 13 hours of original music. Worldwide sales of the games he has scored are over 7 million copies and rising. When I was a kid i never paid attention to music in video games, but it is obviously a vital part.
Below is music from the expansion Rise of Nations: Thrones & Patriots, developed by Big Huge Games and published by Microsoft year 2004. Music composed by Duane Decker.
And another video below of a piece Duane did for Mechwarrior 4: Vengeance. Check it out.
You should check out the various styles of Duane Decker at his Music Dealers profile below.
