Creating a Game's Musical Aesthetic
The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company.
Writing music for games is a very collaborative process. Ultimatey as a Composer your goal is to make the game developer's musical vision happen. I was recently invitedby the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Overture Council to speak about my composition process as well as the relationship between the Composer and development team. I hope you enjoy hearing about my process and thoughts on writing music for games!
