Mark Miller is an American musician and former video game composer. Mark has written music for over 60 games. In 1991, he founded Neuromantic Productions, a video game audio production company that worked closely with Sega's US division. Members of the group created the popular software used for the production of Sega's Genesis music, GEMS. In 1994, Mark started working for Sega of America full time as their Audio Director. A year later, he started working for Crystal Dynamics as both the director of audio and video. In 1997, he founded The Interactive Audio Special Interest Group. He also worked at Harmonix Music Systems up until 1999, where he was a Senior Producer. After leaving the game industry around 2000, he founded iMix and was the CFO and COO for David Associates. He was also the founder of the Urban H2O Concert Series in Yonkers, New York.

Mark was also in the band Spuyten Duyvil from 2009 to 2018. He also founded Hex & Company, which was Manhattan's largest board game cafe. In 2021, Miller founded The Porch NYC, a restaurant and music venue which he still operates to this day.

Music Composition


Mark and some of the other composers from Neuromantic created GEMS (Genesis Editor for Music and Sound). Prior to GEMS, he, along with Jonathan Miller, Chris Sloane and Burt Grigg coded the drivers for Mario Lemieux Hockey, Art Alive, M81 Abrams Battle Tank and Fantasia.


Mark primarily used BMus, Sculptured Software's sound driver. The majority of the games he composed used the first variant by David Ross and Bill Williams, while Rocko's Modern Life: Spunky's Dangerous Day uses the second variant by Ross, Steve Aguirre and Ricky Lyond.

Earthworm Jim uses Bitmasters's SLICK/Audio by David O'Riva.
