on Comic Jumper:
Original Sound Version:
The “Improbable Paper Pals” world is scored by
John DeBorde, but might be confused for Glenn Miller. This
swinging jazzy collection joins its peers in the world of
Captain Smiley in being irresistibly charming and fitting
of the action. Part noir and part looney tunes, “Ropes
Battle” safely embodies the lot of De Borde’s
contribution to the soundtrack with trumpets playing silly
(yet difficult) licks and smooth percussion.
The music in the game is an absolute win. WIN! I tell ya,
win! The music perfectly matches the tone of the game...
on 'Splosion Man:
"'Splosion Man offers a lengthy and engaging puzzle platforming
experience that's only helped by great music and hilarious
jokes...the music for the game fits in perfectly."
Cheat Code Central:
"The game is accompanied by great background music."
on Crude Impact:
"The film is backed by a subtle and tense musical score,
momentum as the crisis unfolds."
"The cinematography, iconic images, symbolism, soundtrack
and the overall production quality are absolutely top notch."
-Chris Vernon of TheOilDrum.com
on The Collingswood Story:
"The music by John DeBorde is excellent . . . and adds
to the foreboding atmosphere."
". . .a creepily effective minimalist score. . ."
-The Horror Review
Some Comments from Clients:
There is nothing more to say than that...the highest honor
of Awesomeness. :)
You knocked this one out of the park, can't wait for (more)
Director of 'Splosion Man
“Not only is John fast and extremely easy to work with,
he has an innate ability
to translate my words and instructions into on the spot music
of any style. Having worked with many other composers, the
quality of John’s work has become
very apparent to me. I would highly recommend John to anyone
in need of
high quality music.”

"John was brilliant to work with. He is collaborative
when you ask
him to be, and driven when you ask him to create on his own.
imaginative and the music that he creates is wonderful. John's
is a huge part of our film, Crude Impact. It evokes great
that fit perfectly with the various topics as they arise."

Thanks for putting in serious effort to get our film completed
in time. As I've mentioned, your music has received great
compliments. I look forward to working with you in the future.”
Director of Reconocer
“It has been an absolute pleasure working with you
and I will definitely recommend you for future work with our
studio. Thanks so much for your work and professionalism.
Hope we can do this again sometime.”
Producer of Backyard Skateboarding – ATARI
“Recently I had the opportunity to work with John DeBorde
when he scored the soundtrack of my documentary Voices of
the Sierra Tarahumara. Not only did he deliver the music in
a professional and timely manner, but worked on his own to
create a fantastic sound with very little direction. He has
a unique ability to communicate to the audience what is sometimes
difficult to articulate—the feeling and vision of the
filmmaker. It is a much better film through his efforts.”
Director and Producer of Voices of the Sierra Tarahumara
Thanks so much for the great work on the Business 2.0 promo.
gotten many comments, many specifically on the sound design
music. As always in our work together, we couldn't have delivered
the quality level we did and in the time-line we had without
think of you as an integral part of the Sp3d team.

“At LWD I produced 7 interactive CD-ROMs in a brief
2 year period of productivity where the average Software Development
cycle ranged from six to twelve weeks. John DeBorde's talents
as a composer / musician and his ability to produce on demand
really came through for us in that tightly deadline driven
multimedia production environment. We had over thirty video
clips of action sports footage (and other recreational activities)
on the "Inside Guide To Park Ctiy" CD that we needed
to match up with appropriate sound tracks. John provided us
with a number of tracks to choose from (in the file formats
WE requested, and he even Fed-exed them to us when we were
in a pinch to make our beta test / mastering deadline. His
tunes were the perfect fit for our snow boarding and extreme
skiing sequences. I would recommend his work to anyone looking
for a reliable music partner.
