David Housden is a BAFTA and Ivor Novello nominated composer best known for his collaborations with visionary game developer Mike Bithell on the BAFTA winning Thomas Was Alone and Volume. Drawing on his garage band days, David creates melodic, original scores for some of the most immersive new games out there. Harnessing everything from synths and strings, to pianos and augmented found sounds, his sonic palette constantly pushes the boundaries of media music.

Receiving further recognition for his talents, he was the recipient of a prestigious Ivor Novello award nomination for his work on the sci-fi narrative puzzler QUBE 2, last year. His other recent projects include Rare’s remake of the cult classic Battletoads (Xbox One), the award-winning narrative adventure Lost Words (PS4, Xbox One, Switch, Stadia), and atmospheric noir horror hit Once Upon A Time in Roswell (PS4, Xbox One).

“I hired David as a composer, what I got was a collaborator. His work on Thomas helped to elevate the game far beyond anything I could have hoped it would be. He’s a hero, give him the room to excel and you’ll be shocked at what he can deliver.”
