ABOUT ME

Virginia Leo is a composer & sound designer working primarily with video games but also across all other mediums.

Her most notable work was featured in the Black Cat, White Rabbit, and Christmas updates for The Baby In Yellow by Team Terrible which has over 200 million downloads on Android/iOS and PC. Since she started working on the project in 2021, multiple YouTubers such as Jacksepticeye and Markiplier have also created content for the game. Virginia has participated in many game jams over the years since starting her journey in game audio around 2018. During Ludum Dare 51 (2022) she placed 3rd out of 2414 submissions in the 'Audio' category for Metal Muscle Mage.

Virginia worked on The Museum of Imagined Futures a virtual reality experience about the climate crisis produced by Indigo Storm in collaboration with Studio ANRK. This VR project was funded by StoryFutures as part of StoryTrails, the UK’s largest immersive storytelling experience. The project was toured and exhibited at 15 locations across the UK during the summer of 2022. Later in 2023, it was nominated in the 'Immersive' category for the South by Southwest SXSW Innovation Awards.

In 2022, Rings of Saturn, a technical deathcore band with game-influenced tunes released their first all-instrumental album which added elements of world music, choral vocals, piano, and strings to their progressive and electronic attack. Virginia was featured on the album as a pianist, orchestral producer, and composer. After releasing the Rings of Saturn self-titled album, she toured 23 states across the United States with the band on their Cyber Shred Tour 2022.

Virginia’s love for wildlife and conservation led her to work on nature documentaries. She composed and produced the score for Peregrine Coast, a short documentary that was awarded for the Animalis Fabula Festival's Official Selection in February of 2021. Around the same time, she was writing her dissertation on Gamification in Music Education as part of her BA Hons Degree in Sound for Games & Apps at the dBs Institute, where she would graduate with a First Class Honours.
