Sean Murray

Sean Murray

is an American composer who has composed for Deep Blue Sea 2 (2018), God, the Devil and Bob (2000), Art Heist (2004), Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997), Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (2012), True Crime: Streets of LA (2003), Call of Duty: World at War (2008), Call of Duty: Black Ops (2010), Showdown in Manila (2016).

This year, Sean defines the sound of Call of Duty once again with Black Ops, his second in the biggest entertainment in history. His dark symphonic score is enhanced by an 80 piece orchestra that features the talent of leading Hollywood musicians and was recorded at the famed Warner Brothers Eastwood Scoring Stage in Los Angeles.
Sean’s scores have hit on every musical genre from the gothic horror of Buffy the Vampire Slayer to hip-hop action in the successful video game True Crime, Streets of L.A. by Activision. His music for Call of Duty: World at War has been described as “some of the coolest music we’ve ever heard in a game. The darker texture of the music, the somber and hostile emotions it elicits, does a powerful job of capturing the gritty, unsanitized vision of war that Treyarch is going for.”
Sean grew up in Santa Barbara, California where he learned the craft of film composing by scoring dozens of student movies for the Brooks Institute Film School. He made his professional debut as for the action film Scorpion.
