Steve composes for multi-media, TV and film and runs Steve Kirk Studios based out of Seattle, Washington.
Steve’s latest score - Bartlow’s Dread Machine:
“What if the very first "video game" was actually invented in 1907? That's the premise of Bartlow's Dread Machine, created by Beep Games and Tribetoy. Teddy Roosevelt has been kidnapped, and it's the player's mission to rescue him.
“Composer Steve Kirk says his inspiration for the rollicking soundtrack was a surprising combination of Ravel, Schubert and John Philip Sousa!”
Many thanks to Kate Remington of NPR for that quote.
Previous scores include game designer Ron Gilbert's Thimbleweed Park, available on XBox One, Speed and PC platforms.
Voodoo Vince Remastered, with over three hours of music composed by Steve is slated for release in early 2017 on Xbox One and Windows.
Other recent projects include composing music for the iOS releases “Skurvy Skallywags” for Beep Games and “Cookie Jam” for SGN. Steve also composed Cantina music for the Star Wars MMOL game “The Old Republic”. Other projects include music for the Disney game version of "The Princess And The Frog," and the FarmVille Theme for Zynga.
Before that, Steve was involved as the composer on a multimedia project requiring that he compose, arrange, prepare scores, individual parts, and finally mix and master over three hours of music for a wonderfully creative game called “Voodoo Vince“ (developed by Beep Industries for Microsoft Games on the Xbox platform) within a period of only six months. The original soundtrack audio CD, released on the Sumthing Else label, has received rave reviews.
