We are thrilled to announce Martin Stig Andersen, a Danish composer best known for his award-winning work within video games has joined the Air-Edel roster.
In 2009 he created the audio for Playdead’s video game ‘Limbo’ which won Outstanding Achievement in Sound Design at the Interactive Achievement Awards, the IndieCade Sound Award 2010, and was nominated for Use of Audio at the BAFTA Video Games Awards 2011. Following the release of ‘Limbo’, Martin created and directed the audio for Playdead’s ‘Inside’ which won Best Audio at the Game Developers Choice Awards, and has received music and sound design nominations at The Game Awards, The Interactive Achievement Awards and the BAFTA Video Games awards amongst others.
With a background in the fields of acousmatic music, sound installations, electroacoustic performance, and video art, Martin is known for exploring dynamic relationship between sound and image as a means to revealing new stories and emotional experiences. His work is often characterized by blurring the dividing line between music and sound design and while he covers the whole spectrum he is also collaborating with other composers and sound designers in creating unified sound worlds.
