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
