A few weeks ago, I got to participate in a very fun live composing event at GlitchCon, called Game Music Melee. Three of us composers got up onstage to write video game music on the spot, based on game suggestions from the audience, in JUST 30 MINUTES. Not a lot of time. Emily Reese of the Level with Emily podcast hosted, and after two rounds of composing, she interviewed us about our process. It turned out so cool, I wanted to post it as this week’s Composer Quest episode.
Thanks to Emily Reese for hosting, and thanks to Troy Strand and Robert Frost III for being excellent composing companions. As a sidenote, Kare11 just did a nice story about the growing Minnesota video game scene, and they shot part of their story at GlitchCon! Also, thanks to our audio engineer Bryan Schumann.
