It’s time for another of my patented every-couple-of-months updates! This time around we’ve got some spiffy new video projects, the amazing games <REDACTED> and <REDACTED>, and a podcast interview with the amazing Emily Reese of Top Score!
Let’s start with the last thing first:
I met Emily last year at a fantastic game audio conference in LA called GameSoundCon, and this year at GDC, she asked if I’d be willing to do an interview for an episode of her amazing podcast. While I’m an erratic and rambling interview subject, she made me sound almost normal (a feat to be sure), and if you have any interest in game music, I strongly (STRONGLY) urge you to check out her podcast, either on their site (http://minnesota.publicradio.org/radio/programs/top-score/) or on iTunes or your podcast engine of choice. It’s really the best produced, best presented look at game music and the composers behind it out there, and I was incredibly honored to be invited to participate.
Thanks, Emily. 🙂
Now, for something Nifty:
The Ballad of Westerado
(Not sure if the above embed will work, if not, click the link above!)
This was an absurdly awesome project to be a part of. It’s an interactive promotional short film for the newly-released game, Westerado, produced by the fine folks over at Imagos Films. Incredibly fun to work on, I got to mash up my own western themes with bits of Sam van Lonkhuyzen’s fantastic score for the game. I’ve since released the whole score on my Soundcloud page for your listening pleasure:
Finally, I got another opportunity to work with Imagos, this time on a short for the upcoming paternal swordfighting sim, Dad by the Sword. It’s even more amazing/ridiculous than Westerado.
