Theme A Is What I Pack My Luggage To…

We’ve posted Smooth McGroove covers before; but this one has a special place for me. Like many of us, Tetris was one of the first games that I really sunk some time into and Theme A is ingrained in my head like few other pieces of music. So, for your enjoyment is an acapella take on the most iconic “piece” from Tetris…

This can bring peace to the “Console Wars”

As you all well know; I love good music, especially creative music. This follows both criteria pretty solidly. Enjoy.

Get Lucky as told by Mario Paint

Seriously, Nintendo.

 

People are still making things with Mario Paint. Think of it this way, has anything you’ve made in recent memory going to have that sort of staying power?

 

No?

 

Okay then.

 

Enjoy

Simply “Symphonic” or The Future of Video Game Music

Little to most people know, but I was a music minor in college.  As such, music has always been an integral part of who I am.  It speaks to me like a canvas speaks to a painter, or stone to a sculptor.  I believe that it, like all art, can change lives and effect us to our core.

 

I think that is why game music has always been an interesting topic for me.  It combines two of the things that I love, and it is constantly evolving with the medium.  When you think of early games, names like Nobuo Uematsu and Koji Kondo come to mind.  More recently, Jesper Kyd, Jason Graves, and Martin O’Donnel have been instrumental in crafting some of the more memorable modern soundscapes.

 

Some how, David Valjalo managed to get the three of them together for an incredible interview; discussing modern game music, how it has developed and where it is going to go.  If you have any interest in either medium, please go give it a read.  It is one of the lesser thought of aspects of game development, and one of the most important. Enjoy

Modern Music – Brought to by…the WiiU?

I’ve always enjoyed music that uses real world sounds as its base.  It’s relatively new concept, musically speaking, but it can create some really interesting soundscapes.  Enter tonight’s musical selection.  Though it eventually takes some samples from New Super Mario Brothers U, initially it is all from the system itself. It’s pretty cool stuff. Coming up tomorrow will be our predictions on the Game Critics E3 Awards, so speculate away as to what you think will be taking the win.

The Moon Level…You Know Which One

With how often this has become, this might become its own thing; but once again, here is some music to close out your evening to. Brought to you by Smooth McGroove, Capcom, and those rascals at Disney.   (As a sidenote: this is easily one of best pieces of game music ever.)
