Clint Bajakian

Developer Biography

(Quoted from Interview on Mix 'n Mojo)
"My name is Clint Bajakian. I began musical studies on piano and euphonium at the age of eight in Massachusetts. I played in a marching band from grade 5-8, then took up the guitar and played in a number of rock bands from 1977 to 1984. In 1982, I enrolled in the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, fulfilling a double-Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Theory and Classical Guitar Performance. I earned a Masters of Music degree in Music Composition at The University of Michigan in 1991 culminating with an orchestral work that was performed publicly. That same year, I got a call from Michael Land, an old friend with whom I'd played much music since 1976, inviting me to compose music with him and Peter McConnell, another old friend, at LucasArts (then Lucasfilm Games). My fiancée and I hit the road from Michigan and I worked several months on Monkey Island2: LeChuck's Revenge and Indiana Jones: The Fate of Atlantis. In 1993, I took on a full-time position there which I kept until May 2000, at which time I started my own music and sound production company called C. B. Studios."
