George Alistair Sanger (born December 14, 1957) is a musician who has composed music for over 250 different computer and video games, beginning in 1983. Some of his best-known works include The 7th Guest, Wing Commander, Hard Nova, Maniac Mansion (NES version), Loom, and Tux Racer. Sanger leads the band Team Fat, which also includes fellow video game music composers Dave Govett, Joe McDermott and Kevin Weston Phelan. He has also written a novel, The Fat Man on Game Audio: Tasty Morsels of Sonic Goodness, described by him as, "a book about game audio wrapped in a biography wrapped in a philosophy on life." In his own words: "The Fat Man is a big-hearted alien who wears the skins of cowboy heroes whose bodies he has found in the desert.
He finds it to his liking to hover over Austin in a huge radar-cloaked zeppelin, composing music for games with his legendary team of Cowboy Composers, Team Fat. His work on hit games has more than once changed the face of game music. People Magazine called him "a top candidate for the most prolific--and obscure--living American composer," yet as he consumes only ammonia and uncooked brown rice, his rates remain reasonable, and he is very well-behaved."
