My Story

             Since 2007 I’ve had the opportunity to create audio experiences with industry juggernauts including LucasArts, Epic, Playful, Electronic Arts, Activision, Naughty Dog, Retro, Starbreeze, Disney, and notable mobile application and gaming developers. During my career I have been fortunate enough to have contributed my skills to a few video games that have won audio awards including Uncharted 3 and The Force Unleashed 2.

             Most recently I’ve been diving into the new and exciting world of VR audio with titles such as Lucky’s Tale for Oculus, Robo Recall for Oculus and multiple projects for Starbreeze using their next-gen StarVR headset. It is incredibly exciting to be at the forefront of this challenging and boundary pushing technology while defining how to craft the best sounding experiences for the new medium.

             Along with my career I also feel a strong need to give back. I want to help others navigate through the murky waters of becoming a professional in the audio industry by sharing everything I’ve learned over the course of my career. 

DEMO REEL

Damian Kastbauer

“Every team needs someone who is an unwavering voice of reason and reliable instigator of change for the better. Not only does Aaron exemplify both of these qualities, he does them one better by simultaneously being as dedicated to the overall pursuits of a project as he is to his own high bar of quality. With a strong fundamental desire to build on his past experiences and continue to push the potentials of interactive sound, you can count on the continuation of his attention to detail and steadfast commitment to settle for nothing but the best for game audio.”

“Aaron Brown is a true game audio professional.  When I first got the chance to work with him I found myself so  frequently surprised and impressed by how his game audio knowledge and skill set seemed to extend beyond and into realms I didn’t even know existed. Sound design, implementation,  middleware, mixing, mastering, music, AND dynamic music, editing and hardware.  Aaron’s worked as a member of some of the best groups  in game audio and it shows.  He’s a DIY game audio problem solver and a perfectionist.”

“As a client, we are both obsessive and demanding  with our musical requirements.  Aaron was on point from day one  and delivered an excellent product within  a very tight timeline. He’s got creative chops,  production value comparable to a much larger  studio, as well as the ability to be organized  and deliver on time.”

“To Whom It May Concern,

I had the pleasure of working with Aaron Brown at both LucasArts and Sony Computer Entertainment America. He worked as a Sound Designer on projects like Uncharted 3, Star Wars the Force Unleashed, and Indiana Jones. Aaron created content, integrated and mixed sounds, debugged tools and created tool documentation, and kept a positive attitude while doing it. His work ethic is very impressive, and he was always willing to go the extra mile during nights and weekends.

Aaron is very detail-oriented, passionate, and methodical. He gave each project that we collaborated on a very necessary and timely boost in both creativity and process. I would recommend him as a team member, contractor or consultant on any interactive project.”
