Dave O'Riva

David O'Riva is an American composer and programmer. He started off his career, working for Tengen from 1988 until 1990, when both O'Riva and Lanzinger left to start out Bitmasters. He worked mainly for Bitmasters and designed the sound drivers there. He also did some work for Frank Lanzinger. When Tengen or Franz couldn't find musicians for their games, they would ask David. Some of his music had him collaborate with Alex Rudis.
