Sega Music Group was a short-lived publishing label set up by Sega of America as a department of SegaSoft, using video games as a means of exposure to music artists, as opposed to radio or television. Its "resident composer" was Spencer Nilsen, and the group covered a handful of Sega Mega-CD and Sega Saturn games in the mid-1990s.
Sega Music Group was formed after management split the audio department of Sega Multimedia Studio into its own studio. It was housed in a two-storey 11,000-square-foot building in San Francisco, and had an Euphonix CS2000 mixing desk.
Sega Music Group is known to have signed one band; a rock group known as Bygone Dogs, who in turn wrote and performed several tracks in Sega video games. It is unknown exactly what happened to the label, though after Sega struck a deal with PolyGram, the studio had little reason to exist. The studio was subsequently purchased by Nilsen and other ex-Sega members in 1997, becoming an asset of Nilsen's company, OffPlanet Entertainment.
