Biography

Garry Schyman (born 1954) is an American film, television, and video game music composer. He graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in music composition in 1978, and began work in the television industry, writing music for such television series as Magnum, P.I. and The A-Team. By 1986, he was composing for movies such as Judgement and Hit List. At the request of a friend in 1993, he composed the music for the video game Voyeur, but after creating the music for two more games he left the industry, citing the low budgets and poor quality of video game music at the time. He continued to compose for film and television, only to return to video games for 2005’s Destroy All Humans!. Finding that in his absence the quality and perceived importance of video game music had risen substantially, he has since composed for several games, writing the scores to Bioshock and Dante’s Inferno among others. His latest score is that of Bioshock 2, released in 2010. He has won numerous awards for his video game scores, including several “soundtrack of the year” awards. Throughout his career, he has worked on over 25 television shows, 10 films, and 10 video games.
