Dr. B.A. Ferguson was born in Waco, Texas. He was 11 years old when he came across the video game Chrono Trigger for the Super Nintendo. This would be the catalyst that would get him into music and composition. He won the Reed Holmes award in 2007 for his compositions, and his composition “Through the Looking Glass in 60 Seconds” was curated as part of the 60×60 Scarlet Mix and it was performed throughout the world. At this time, he also started playing with the Led Zeppelin tribute band, Mothership, and its sister group: Q: The Music of Queen. Dr. B.A. Ferguson’s video game research co-authored with TJ Laws-Nicola was recently published in the Journal of Sound and Music in Video Games in 2021 and in the edited collection Nostalgia in Video Game Music (to be released June 2022). He also completed five video game soundtracks in 2020 and 2021, including one for the Nintendo Switch that will soon be released. As a classical guitar performer, Dr. B.A. Ferguson performs music of living composers with a specialty on music from Latin America and video game music arrangements. He also performs with Dr. Michael Averett in the MIENT Duo, and they have an album due out later this year. Aside from performing, Dr. Ferguson teaches and has taught music to hundreds of students in the Texas, Kansas, and Maryland areas.
