This exposure would provide Schyman with the foundation on which to base his unique and incredibly successful career in composition. Among his most famous early scores is his work on cult TV classics such as: The A-Team, Magnum P.I. and The Greatest American Hero. He went on to score one of the most interesting and innovative video games from the early 1990's, Voyeur for which his groundbreaking orchestral music received an award for "Best Original Game Score". His successful and lasting partnership with Von Zerneck-Sertner Films on the series of television movies adapted from author Robin Cook's medical mysteries, along with his many scores for television movies and series ensures Schyman's position within the top ranks of TV composers. In addition to a long and established career, Schyman continues to write purely for the love of music, including his well-received viola concerto "Zingaro". Schyman's recent work includes the critically acclaimed original score to THQ's/Pandemic Studios blockbuster videogame hit; Destroy All Humans! (nominated for three G.A.N.G awards including "Music of the Year"), as well as his latest scores Full Spectrum Warrior: Ten Hammers and Destroy All Humans 2 for THQ's/Pandemic Studios. He is currently scoring the groundbreaking new "next-gen" videogame BioShock for 2k/Irrational Games. Schyman is a long time resident of the Los Angeles area where he lives and works with his wife Lisa and 5-year-old son Ethan. http://www.garryschyman.com/ Read more on Last.fm.
