Developer Biography

Tom Zehnder is an award-winning composer and songwriter. A 20-year veteran of the games industry (scoring over 60 titles) as well as a performing musician, he is equally comfortable conducting a 60-piece orchestra, recording and mixing in his state-of-the-art Pro Tools studio, or performing live with his band.

Zehnder’s experience includes writing and producing rock/dance/pop songs as well as scoring classic horror /sci-fi orchestral music. His most recent project due out August 2011 involved writing and producing eight original songs for the Ubisoft Wii dance game connected to Sony Animation’s new movie “The Smurfs.” Other highlights include “Van Helsing” (lead composer/music supervisor) which garnered nominations for “Music of the Year” and “Best Orchestral Recording,” the classic cult sci-fi epic “Battlestar Galactica” (cut-scene composer and supervisor,) Fisher Price’s “Battle Castle” (lead composer), and Mattel’s “Barbie Princess and the Pauper” (composer/songwriter/singer) which won “Best Edutainment/Children Audio.” He has also scored marketing videos, corporate presentations, commercials and films.

An eclectic and lover of all forms of music, Zehnder gets inspired rendering a multitude of styles and forging hybrid genres. Whether it’s an epic action title (Van Helsing), an irreverent quiz show requiring a punk band (Codehead), a whimsical jazz world (Curious George) or writing songs in French for the best selling educational title in France, (Adibou), Zehnder gets raves from producers and critics. “The (Van Helsing) soundtrack is where the audio shines though, as it captures the feel of the movie perfectly, swinging aptly between brooding mood music to epic crescendos during combat.” -XBOX World

Tom Zehnder holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in music composition summa cum laude from UCLA.
