Rick Fox is an American composer and sound designer. In 1990, he was playing keyboards for David Bowie on the Sound and Vision tour. Iguana Entertainment game designers saw the show in San Fransisco and asked Rick if he would consider help port the music to their "NBA Jam" title. He decided to accept the job, and the game ended up selling as much (if not more) than some David Bowie albums. Then he ended up doing music for other titles such as the 'Aero the Acrobat' games and 'Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel'. Rick also had the pleasure of working with video game musician Christopher Tin. He's also worked with big name musicians such as Alan Parsons, Snoop Dogg and Ensane Wayne.

Fox continues to compose music for games to this day, as well as other media including television and film.

Music Development


Fox created MIDI files using an unknown sequencer, which were then converted to the GEMS driver.


Fox created MIDI files, which were then converted to the Bitmasters SLICK/Audio sound driver programmed by David O'Riva.


Rick was usually credited in games under the pseudonym Fox Productions. This was simply the name of his company, and it is unknown if he chose to be credited this way, or if it was a choice of the game developer's. It was most likely Rick's choice, though.
