For the last little while, I've been working on game audio for Telltale Games and loving it! Recently, I finished designing audio for Batman: Episode 2: Children of Arkham for Telltale's Batman Series.

I am excited to announce my YouTube Video Game Music Series! Over the last couple months, I've uploaded a series of videos of myself playing some of my favorite video game music. As a child, I played Final Fantasy while I learned to play the piano. Before too long, I took to tapping out Nobuo Uematsu tunes by ear. I then began to composing my own music, and a dream was born.

Hey, everyone! Long time, no check in. Sorry about that. I've just finished an amazing contract working with Telltale Games on sound design for the hit series, Minecraft Story Mode. But I'm back and finding myself with a little free time. I've decided to take the plunge, and see to a project that's been on the backburner for way too long. I've put together a GoFundMe campaign to remaster the original soundtracks for Aveyond 1&2! For hardcore fans, this will be welcome news, as official soundtracks for the first two games were never released. Aveyond is a very special series to me. It's what allowed me to leave my day job and start composing game audio professionally. It also allowed me to create Walz Music & Sound. Please stop by and check out the campaign. Give if you can and spread the word to support this amazing labor of love. Thank you!

Walz Music has been hard at work to bring new, amazing game audio to the world. First off, we're super excited to announce the release of Aveyond 4: Shadow of the Mist featuring original symphonic compositions by Aaron Walz!

Next, new from Kabam, Star Wars: Uprising. Available at the Apple App store and GooglePlay, this action packed game will provide hours of on-the-go entertainment.

Largely influenced by Latin folk music, her songs tell passionate stories about love and life. Walz Music & Sound is very excited to be working with Rosy on her latest endeavor.

As for the music in the Aveyond series, it was truly absorbing & added so much to the game. Thank you for your work. It is truly appreciated amongst fans of the game.
"Awesome sound drop! This first milestone has made me extremely excited."
We met only once to discuss the music and in only about three iterations, he was able to nail the tune we were hoping for. We were thoroughly impressed by his work.
"Yesterday I checked the audio you send me, and I must say that I'm very happy with the result. Great!"
"Walz Music melodies are the best there are!! Every one I hear gets stuck in my head (in a good way) and everyone I know agrees!"
Epic, that's the single word I would use to describe the soundtrack.
Clearly a lot of work went into making the game sound great and it really shows in the finished product.
The music. . . makes you really get into the mood of the game so I give it 5/5.
Wonderful music, sounds that are expertly executed.
My favorite things about Walz Music are the epic scores, catchy tunes, and decent pricing. It's like Christmas every time I check my inbox.
It's the best music I've heard to date in reviewing titles for Game Tunnel.
Dragon Nest SEA has very good voice overs. I really like some NPCs just because of their voices.
He did an excellent job, as the song can be played infinitely without annoyance - the true test of a great composition.
Last night I found myself humming one of the tunes as I fell asleep
Wonderful music, sounds that are expertly executed
