ABOUT DUNCAN WATT
Duncan Watt's career includes work in television, film, broadcasting and digital games. A seasoned studio musician, producer and sideman, Watt worked on more than 70 album projects before founding Fastestmanintheworld Media in 2005. Duncan's work appears in a wide variety of projects, including the internationally-acclaimed Bioshock Infinite (Irrational/Take-Two), the wildly-successful League Of Legends (Riot/Tencent, with 1.2 billion play hours/month, the most-played game in the world as of early 2013), Need For Speed Undercover (EA/Black Box), Stargate Online TCG (Sony), Brothers In Arms: Hell's Highway (Ubisoft/Gearbox), and many others.
Recently, IGN named BioShock Infinite and League Of Legends "Top 25 Games Of The Decade", and BioShock Infinite won Best Original Score at the 2014 BAFTA Awards. In addition to contract work, Watt served as Audio Lead and Lead Composer on League Of Legends at launch, and spent two years as Senior Composer/Audio Designer at the ill-fated 38 Studios (Kingdoms Of Amalur/Project Copernicus).
Born into a family of classical musicians, Watt plays piano, Hammond organ, keyboard, drums, synthesizers, hand and orchestral percussion, electric and acoustic guitar, ukelele, harp and electric bass, among other instruments. Outside of digital games, his music is featured in summer blockbuster "Now You See Me" (Lionsgate), and appears in a number of popular TV shows, including "The Good Wife" (ABC), "NCIS" (CBS), "Any Day Now" (Lifetime), and a wide variety of My Little Pony (Hasbro) and Transformers (Hasbro) toys and apps as well. Watt is also an in-demand composer for TV commercials and trailers.
As a voice actor, Watt is the voice of League Of Legends' fan-favorites Rammus and Blitzcrank, and has been featured in Pirates CSG Online (Sony Online Entertainment), PowerGig: Rise Of The Six String (745 Studios), AutoAssault (NCsoft), and WordFu (ngmoco), among others.
A strong public speaker, Watt has been asked to appear at many conferences and schools, including the Game Developers Conference, PAX East, Montreal International Game Summit, AES, Brandeis, Yale and Berklee College Of Music.
When not working, Duncan spends time with his two sons, and enjoys hiking, Judo, Brazilian jujitsu, Guinness, disc golf, and a variety of mid-life-crisis-oriented activities.
