Joris de Man

Joris de Man is a BAFTA-nominated and double Ivor Novello winning composer known for compelling themes built around captivating melodies. From glitchy electronica to orchestral soundtracks, Joris has always focused on writing strong, melodic story-driven music that supports an emotional journey.

Well recognised for his work on the Playstation blockbuster Horizon Zero Dawn, Joris has been integral to the development of the series’ soundtracks, including the DLC Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds and the sequel Horizon Forbidden West, his themes for the game, and its main character Aloy providing a signature sound.

He is also widely known for his work on the first three instalments of Guerrilla’s Killzone franchise, FuturLab’s Velocity series, and the MOBA hit, Vainglory, as well as the upcoming Gotham Knights by Warner Brothers.
Outside of video games, Joris has also scored various films, including Studio Mir’s 2018 short, Koji, and BAFTA winning director Mike Mort’s stop-motion feature, Chuck Steel – Night of the Trampires.

Joris and his team provide complete scoring to picture services, from concept to fully produced, recorded and mixed scores.
