Lars Norpchen started his work into the realm of video games in 1989 when he was a games tester for Spectrum Holobyte. The same year, he started helping program games there and then he quit the company in 1991 in order to do freelance work so he could develop Sega Genesis games and he also did some support for some Maxis titles. In 1992, he joined the Walt Disney Imagineering and created interactive theme park attractions. In 1995, he left there and started the Total Entertainment Network (TEN) which was a popular online gaming network. It wasn't long before Lars returned to Disney a couple years later and managed computer attraction creation for DisneyQuest. In 2001, he left Disney for good and started Octopus Motor with "Sparky", in which they develop independent computer games.

Unfortunately, Lars didn't get the chance to work on the sound for many games, and even less for music.
