Kirk Markarian
Video Game Music Composition / SFX

My name is Kirk Markarian. I’m a composer of electronic music and SFX for video games, with an ever-growing portfolio provided below. There are several other pieces of music I’ve done for film and animation at my website: http://www.kirkmarkarian.net

As posted in the title, I compose in many electronic music styles, including: Vaporwave, Chillwave, Retrowave, Synthwave, Ambient, Glitch, Chiptune, etc. I design nearly all of my own sounds via various forms of synthesis, or record acoustic sounds. I do not compose classical, neo-classical, or other forms of acoustic music.

I work quickly for my clients and spend the time to get to know their requirements as I compose their tracks. I aim to stay ahead of schedule for rapid results and speedy turnover. I’m also adept at balancing multiple projects!
