First off many thanks to Kim at Later Levels for spreading the word to her followers here and on Twitter; thank you Kim, you are the kindest person I’ve never met.
As a result of Kim’s kindness we heard from Chris over at the OverThinker Y blog about one of his fonder gaming memories. We all have different experiences with games but–in Chris’s case–two games in particular played a role in developing his interest in music.
“KH and Final Fantasy X between them got me interested in music in general, especially soundtrack music, and I took up piano specifically to learn tracks from them. I even took music in college purely so I’d get a chance to write a project on my favourite gaming music! These days I’m not as musical as I’d like to be, but I do compose for my blog in a sort of OST-like style.”
Be sure to follow Chris and his increasingly stellar Musical Mayhem series. Chris chats with friends and fellow gamers about music and games then composes a special track for them. I like special tracks, and will likely be chatting with Chris soon.
Here’s the latest track from his Musical Mayhem series and chat with Neko Jonez. Warning: It’s pretty rad.
What are some of your favorite game soundtracks?
