Hi I'm Stemage - a composer, session player, and audio engineer. I am the creator of Metroid Metal, the guitar player and co-composer for the Emmy-nominated Steven Universe, and I've done work for Choice Provisions, Google, The Avett Brothers, Zach Gage, Brave Wave Productions, Manami Matsumae (Mega Man), and Keiji Yamagishi (Ninja Gaiden).
My latest project was music and sound design for Card of Darkness - developed by Zach Gage (Ridiculous Fishing), Pendleton Ward (Adventure Time), and Choice Provisions (BIT.TRIP) and released on Apple Arcade in 2019.
I strive to make compelling music and thrive on collaboration. Thanks for stopping by, and please reach out!
Game music samples:
Card of Darkness is a hand-painted adventure designed around an accessible, minimalist, card game core—brought to you by Zach Gage (Ridiculous Fishing), Pendleton Ward (Adventure Time), and Choice Provisions (BIT.TRIP).
The music pulls from retro RPGs, Switched-On synth stuff, fits of danger and wonder, and the innocence of early drum machines. Card of Darkness is available on Apple Arcade.
out of the ordinary.
