Utah Audio Composers

We’re a small collective of composers, based out of the Utah Game Audio Facebook group. We all live in the Salt Lake or Utah valleys. We’re presenting our skills for use on game, video and other media projects.

We can do custom music and audio for any length/type of product (games, feature films, commercials, jingles, songs, sfx, Foley, recording/editing, audio repair, . . .).  We'll have a number of composers at UDEN #21 each with a laptop and their portfolios, so you can hear just how talented this group is! Among our super talented composers you can meet live and in person will be Elias James, Karina Pardus, Rachel Robison, Jace Krogh, Josh Jones, Joe Galloway, Don Suite and Cody Crabb.

We would love to discuss any audio needs you may have for your games, films, blogs or other needs!  See you there!

The Mystery Escape Room presents ZORRO

Find out more about Utah's newest escape room! Launching on 18th February in Salt Lake City it is based on Zorro, featuring a lot of cool electronics and super fun puzzles! 

Zorro has hidden his sword in an old hacienda waiting for the time when it will be needed again. To ensure that it is kept safe and only those worthy of the sword can find it, Zorro created a test. The players must find Zorro’s hidden training room and pass his test to obtain the sword, but it won’t be easy. Zorro placed a time limit on the test, and those who don't succeed in time may find it to be deadly. 

Come see us at UDEN #21, find out more about our Escape Room and the technology we're using!

Tyson Cazier Music

My name is Tyson and I compose music for media, including film and videogames.  My goal is to create music that helps to tell a story.  There is music hidden in every story and it is my job to dig until I have uncovered that music!  

This will be my first UDEN event and I am very excited.  I most look forward to meeting other creatives, form new friendships, and sow the seeds of future collaborations with game developers and other visual media creators.
