Dean Evans is an English composer and sound designer. In March 1991, he started working on video game music at Ocean Software as a composer and sound effects creator. At the beginning of 2000, Dean left Ocean and moved on to Warthog Games as an Audio Head. Near the end of 2002, he quit Warthog and started his own music company Burnbrae Audio, which he still currently runs.

Dean is perhaps best known for his work on Waterworld (SNES). He is also known for The Flintstones (SNES), Jurassic Park (AMI), and Lethal Weapon (AMI).
