Video Game Composer and Sound Designer

ABOUT

Jon Kelliher is a ½ Swedish, ½ Irish composer and sound designer for video games based in Guildford, UK.

Having come from a background in film composition, Jon has integrated into the rapidly-growing indie video game scene in Guildford, the so-called 'Hollywood of Games'. Among other projects, Jon has most recently worked on Trailblazers, Supergonk's first console title as lead audio designer, and is also currently in the process of designing his own interactive audio system for video games in Unity. Jon has also worked on the audio for various educational VR titles for Siyona Tech and Far Few Giants, as well as numerous small indie games with local game developers (22Cans, Media Molecule, ex Lionhead).

Jon is also currently developing his first solo title, Thaddeus and the Orphanage, a 2D story-driven action-platformer featuring an interactive choral/orchestral soundtrack.

He has written interactive game scores using both his own C# audio management system and Wwise, directed and designed entire games' audio and sfx, recorded and directed voice overs and game dialogue, and engineered recording sessions (including live bands and instrumentalists, voice overs, and motion capture).

Jon holds a BA in Contemporary Music Performance.
