Dale North

Composer / Arranger / Performer
Dale North is a composer, arranger, and orchestrator for videogames, based in San Diego. As a multi-instrumentalist (piano, vocal, brass), performer, and singer-songwriter with an international training, he brings a unique voice to videogame music. Dale's music mixes traditional instrumentation with vintage colors, blending live pianos and orchestral tones with the synthesizers and sound sets that shaped the sounds of games from the Super Nintendo and PlayStation eras. His upbringing in Tokyo, Japan helped shape his melodic sense (and his love of synthesizers), and he continues to hold the traditions of game music in the highest regard. He's best known for his work his soundtrack for DREAMSCAPER, WIZARD OF LEGEND, and SPARKLITE and his branding with with Nintendo (Nintendo Minute, Nintendo Power Podcast, Nintendo eShop "The Download"), Tokyo Game Show, Endgaget, and What's Good Games.

Dale looks forward to working on projects that favor creativity and seek to honor game music's rich heritage.

He also really, really likes Welsh Corgis.
