Game Composer Musings #1

Posted by Chris Crooks on September 18, 2014 at 5:30 PM

I’ve made a start on a somewhat involved podcast series called Composer Musings. I’ve long wanted to do a sort of critique of/homage to all the game music I’ve listened to over the years, and a rambling podcast with audio clips spliced in is undoubtedly the best format with which to accomplish this. This series will include overviews of various game systems’ composers, focused sessions on specific composers, companies, or game series, and a bit about my own process of writing music for games and some piano arrangements of music that I’m working on. I may have some music-oriented guests depending on community interest, but we could also have these sorts of music podcasts fall under the umbrella of the usual RogueSpeak and get some 3-4 person conversations going.

My first effort took a bit of time to put together, but it provides a fun little trip down memory lane for gamers my age and a nice little survey of some really excellent Sega Genesis music. I will almost certainly do at least one feature on NES, PSX, and SNES, and almost certainly a good handful devoted entirely to SquareSoft games.

I hope you enjoy it. It was a lot of fun to make.
