My name is Jack Menhorn and I am a composer and sound designer for video games. Below are some example of projects I have worked on. In addition there are some example of WWise audio engine implementation. Please also take a look at my respective Sound Design and Music pages for even more examples of my work.
-Created all in-game sound effects. Implemented sfx using Unity3D with custom animation and scripting plugins. Additional music. The focus of the SFX was to get a good quality Sci-Fi, robot, machine aesthetic with the sound while staying within memory budgets, which did not afford much in the way of variation or dynamics, given the limitations of the device.
The Haunted: Hells-Reach:
-Created additional monster voices/sounds, character foley, ambiences. Responsible for placing sounds in levels using Unreal Editor. Also set up SoundCues for all of the previously mentioned work. Created all in-game music. My primary role in SFX was to fill in gaps in sound design late in the development cycle. I created monster sounds for 90% of the enemies including the boss, as most of the ambience sounds. I cannot take credit for the player voices however.
Quality Assurance Tester, Villain/Elephant Mouse
-Offsite directed testing and exploratory undirected testing of Villain's titles.
Greensboro College, Greensboro, NC — B.A. Music Composition, 2010
-Created character, power-up and UI sound effects. Edited tutorial dialogue. Also set up SoundCues for all of the previously mentioned work. My focus was on creating clean, subtle character foley and power-up SFX and blending them well with existing assets and music.
-Created all music and SFX. Implemented using custom interface created by programmer Eddie Lee. Attempted to seamlessly blend SFX with the music to create a scene that was a bit of it's own instrument while not detracting from the gameplay experience itself.
Wwise SFX Demo Reel:
-Video demonstrating using fundamentals of Wwise including: Game Syncs, Switch Containers, RTPCs, Events and Jawas.
