David Thiel Pinball Composer

Audio Anecdotes Contributor, Microsoft Research Mentor, Father of Q*Bert’s voice, and good friend David Thiel has, among other things, been composing music and sound effects for Stern Pinball since leaving MSR.

Stern being the sole remaining pinball maker makes David’s gig composing interactive scores and sound effects for pinball machines rather unique.

David recently created a website where he is documenting the meticulous care that goes into each game composition.

Checkout: video of David’s work on Stern’s Pirates of the Caribbean, Family Guy, Spider-Man, Wheel of Fortune, Indiana Jones, and CSI, or audio from NBA Pinball.
