Sam Hulick is a BAFTA award-nominated and multiple award-winning composer, best known for creating the signature music for BioWare's epic sci-fi franchise MASS EFFECT. Sam composed the iconic "Mass Effect Theme" as well as "Uncharted Worlds," "From the Wreckage," "Sovereign's Theme," "Victory," "Uplink" and many other compositions for the original MASS EFFECT. The '80s inspired electronic score was lauded by critics as "One of the most memorable and unique soundtracks in gaming," ( Game Informer) and won Best Original Score awards from IGN, GameSpy and GameSpot.

For MASS EFFECT 2, Sam was again tapped for his adept skill of inventive blending of analog synths with orchestral instrumentation. The soundtrack features a suitably darker and more cinematic musical experience to complement the sequel's heavier subject matter. MASS EFFECT 2 received British Academy (BAFTA) and Spike TV VGA nominations for Best Original Score.

The only composer to have worked on all three games in BioWare's blockbuster sci-fi trilogy, Hulick's compositions for MASS EFFECT 3 include "Mars", several key emotional scenes in the game ("I Was Lost Without You", "I'm Proud of You") and the epic finale ("An End, Once And For All"). Hulick also recently provided the new original score for MASS EFFECT 3: Extended Cut. The DLC includes new and extended cinematics that feature more of the emotionally impactful material Hulick was responsible for in MASS EFFECT 3.

Sam Hulick is currently scoring music for BALDUR'S GATE: Enhanced Edition.
