Jeff van Dyck (pronounced “dike”, also known as Jeff Dyck in his early years) is a two-time BAFTA award winning Composer and Audio Director, known for his emotive scores and immersive audio design in videogames over the last two decades. Jeff was awarded a BAFTA in 2001 for the soundtrack Shogun: Total War Warlord Edition, was nominated in 2005 for the soundtrack Rome: Total War and led his team to another BAFTA in 2015 for Alien:Isolation. Jeff’s early work comprised a string of AAA game franchises including EA’s FIFA, NHL and Need for Speed series. He moved into more cinematic and orchestral style of composing through a long involvement with the critically acclaimed Total War franchise. More recently, Jeff’s work can be heard across a range of independent development, a move that has provided the freedom to work on a diverse range of creative projects.
