Biography

Sam Hulick is a BAFTA nominated and multiple award-winning composer, best known for creating the signature music for BioWare’s epic sci-fi franchise MASS EFFECT and the dramatic score for Tripwire Interactive’s groundbreaking RED ORCHESTRA 2: HEROES OF STALINGRAD. With a penchant for injecting powerful emotions and memorable themes, Sam’s original scores range from sweeping sci-fi and orchestral bombast to fantasy landscapes.

Graduating from Indiana University as a computer programmer, Sam sought to combine his passion for writing imaginative music and interactive media. In 2003 he won the Game Audio Network Guild award for young composers. His first foray into the profession of scoring music for video games was Capcom’s MAXIMO vs. ARMY OF ZIN (2003).

Sam’s career propelled to new heights when he was approached to co-write the score for MASS EFFECT (2007) with Jack Wall. Sam penned various memorable compositions such as the iconic “Mass Effect Theme,” as well as “From the Wreckage,” “Sovereign’s Theme,” “Victory,” “Uplink,” and many more. The ‘80s inspired electronic score was lauded by critics as “One of the most memorable and unique soundtracks in gaming,” (Game Informer) and won Best Original Score awards from IGN, GameSpy and GameSpot.

For MASS EFFECT 2 (2010), Sam was again tapped for his adept skill of inventive blending of analog synths with orchestral instrumenation. The soundtrack featured a suitably darker and more cinematic musical experience to complement the sequel’s heavier subject matter.
