Biography

Best known for his award winning and ground breaking work on Acclaim Entertainment’s Turok: The Dinosaur Hunter series, Darren Mitchell has become one of the major audio developers in the interactive gaming industry. He has had glowing press reviews, received several awards, and has had his work and career featured on the Discovery Channel. Darren began studying music at age twelve when he started piano lessons with his local neighborhood piano teacher. After a mere four years he came to be under the tutelage of Dr. Alfred Mouledous, a Tenured Professor of Piano at Southern Methodist University and the Principal Pianist for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Two years later, Darren attended SMU on a full piano scholarship. He later graduated with a Bachelor’s of Music Degree from the University of North Texas. Darren’s compositional career started when he was just sixteen years old, writing various pieces in the classical style for his fellow musicians. He later went on to study composition with Dr. Tom Austin, former President of the International Computer Music Association, and Dr. Cindy McTee, Chairperson of the UNT School of Composition. Impressed with his compositions and his grasp and understanding of Computer Based Composition and knowledge of synthesis and MIDI programming, Dr. McTee appointed him to the position of Teaching Fellow of the Computer Music Lab where he taught the incoming Freshman MIDI, Computer Music History, and the then popular Frequency Modulation (FM) Synthesis.
