Wilbert Roget, II is an award-winning composer for the film and video game industries. An experienced and well-rounded classical musician, Roget received his Music degree from Yale University, graduating With Distinction and winning several awards in the arts.

His unique and diverse musical voice combines elements of large and small performing forces, traditional and modern instrumentation, electronic manipulation of acoustic instruments and sweeping orchestral gesture. Drawing influence from Western Classical music as well as the sounds, idioms, and harmonies of world music from Bulgaria to Bali, Roget has developed a very personal sound and wide, versatile compositional range.

In 2008 Wilbert joined the in-house music team at LucasArts, working as a composer for Star Wars: The Old Republic and music editor on the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed series, Monkey Island special edition remakes, and several other titles. In 2011 he had the honor of winning two Game Audio Network Guild awards for his contributions to the Star Wars: The Old Republic soundtrack. His final soundtrack as LucasArts' staff composer was the unreleased Star Wars: First Assault, a live orchestral score recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios.

As a freelance composer, Roget has scored Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris and Dead Island 2, with his music for these titles earning award nominations from the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences (D.I.C.E. Awards) as well as the Game Audio Network Guild.
