Composer for the Video Game Pony Island

Praise for the Pony Island Original Soundtrack

‘A dynamic and bubbling tribute to 8bit melody that stands comfortably alongside the likes of Undertale and Shovel Knight in its inventiveness and listen-without-playing-appeal.’

VICE Gaming
‘A big contributor to the game’s overall feel is the music...There is an excellent dichotomy between the ‘cheerful façade’ and the player’s realization of the game’s looming antagonist. A large part of this is the music choice.’

‘Jonah Senzel has put together a masterful score here. Tracks like “Enter Pony” and “Louey’s Playhouse” sound like music you’d expect from games of the time period Pony Island is trying to emulate, and leave plenty of room for tracks that are setpiece defining, like “The Machine” and “Sanctuary,” to create instantly memorable moments in the game.’

‘There's a lot of really good music in the soundtrack, and thanks to the very nature of the game, there's a lot of variety to what you'll be listening to as you play. The way the game changes as you progress gives a lot of opportunities to explore different musical arrangements and styles, and I think they did an excellent job with that.’
