VIDEO GAME MUSIC
INSIDE THE CUES
Tim Carlos is an American video game and film composer who has scored works from around the globe. In 2020, he won the Asian Game Audio Summit scoring contest and his piece was recorded by the Budapest Scoring orchestra. His music is set to appear in multiple upcoming indie games including Esperia: Uprising of the Scarlet Witch and Everafter Falls for the Nintendo Switch. He has also written music accompanying films on television, streaming, and at festivals including Atlanta Film Festival, New Orleans Film Festival, RiverRun International Film Festival, and Indie Grits Film Festival.
His scores are known for their orchestral flare and powerful melodies inspired by golden age JRPGs like The Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, and Final Fantasy VI. More modern inspirations come from games like Shadow of the Colossus, Kingdom Hearts, and Xenoblade Chronicles, as well as indie games like Hollow Knight and Stardew Valley.
He received his Bachelor of Music degree in Music Composition from Butler University and his Master of Music degree in Film Music Composition from UNC School of the Arts.
"Choosing Tim to collaborate with on the Everafter Falls soundtrack has been absolutely one of the best decisions I have made... He understands exactly what I am after... requiring little to no other guidance."
