18th Annual Game Audio Network Guild Awards

We are thrilled to be joining The Game Audio Network Guild (G.A.N.G.) for The 18th Annual G.A.N.G. Awards, held May 6th, 2020 at 5:00 PM PT Live via Twitch.tv. Emperia Sound and Music now sponsors the Game Audio Network Guild and contributed music and mixing as well as assisting with production and hosting the show.

The all-digital format will include a Pre-Show, featuring voice actor Mike Shapiro (the voice of G-Man in Half-Life, including the most recent Half-Life: Alyx) and Post-Show with nominee and winner interviews, hosted by Emperia Sound and Music CEO, Composer, and Audio Director, Cody Matthew Johnson. Johnson will also serve as the show's Co-Host and Emcee along with composer Wilbert Roget II.

It is our privilege for our work on the song "Saudade (feat. Shim)" from Resident Evil 2 to also have been nominated for a G.A.N.G. Award for Best Original Song.

The G.A.N.G. Awards recognizes game audio excellence in 20 categories including music, sound design, dialogue, mix, and VR. The nominees were selected by G.A.N.G. Advisory Board members and committees.

G.A.N.G. Co-Host and Emperia Sound and Music CEO, Composer, and Audio Director Cody Matthew Johnson stated, "It's during these trying and unprecedented times that the game audio community has shown its true colors of altruism and support. Personally, I'm honored and thrilled to have been asked to participate in the G.A.N.G. Awards, both helping to produce the show on the awards show committee and as a co-host alongside Wilbert Roget II, a video game music hero of mine!"
