About

My Story

Hi, my name is João Califórnia, I’m a game composer and sound designer. This passion came years ago when I was playing video games with friends. I started to notice the importance that music had in the games that I was playing and how all the sound elements resonated with me and made me feel more excited into the game experience itself.

Feel free to listen to some of my work

“João is a trustful team player because he combines both professional skills and human skills together. He’s a resourceful composer and very committed to each project always inspiring us with his methods and discipline. Able do deal and find solutions for creative and technical challenges, our projects could find in him a problem solver always with a high professional standard meeting delivery dates. I will work with him anytime!”
