Gerard K. Marino
Gerard K. Marino exploded into the game music scene in 2005 as the principal composer for the original GOD OF WAR series and further cemented his reputation for larger-than-life thematic orchestral writing with his scores for DC UNIVERSE ONLINE and THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN. But his musical journey started in Orlando as a “stack-of-synths” rock/pop/funk/new wave keyboard player and was tempered by 5 years of DJ-ing thru college. One month out of USC and he was a go-to electronica producer for renown film composers Christopher Lennertz, Christophe Beck, and Christopher Young which lead to collaborations with club icons Paul Oakenfold, Andy Gray, and Carmen Rizzo and on SWORDFISH, THE MATRIX RELOADED, and THE AGENCY.
Gerard has now fused his past with his present to synthesize future bass in GKMusique, his controllerist DJ project. GKMusique mashes up, remixes, and re-arranges beloved orchestral game themes from Western composers of the last decade with current club tracks and beats: Kratos vs. Kill The Noise, Abzu vs. Aoki, Overwatch vs. Oakenfold, and everything in between. GKMusique first appeared in February of 2017 with the Stetson Chamber Orchestra and had its grand debut at the Mayan Theater in downtown Los Angeles on the first night of E3 2017. GKMusique has since played the Brazilian International Game Festival in Sao Paolo and will be one of the headliners for FANTOKU on Sunday, November 5, at The Geek Easy.
