At MAGFest 9 I was privileged to host two panels and sit on one other. I’ll go into more detail about the entire experience later, but in the meantime I’d like to share the first of my two panel videos with you. Here is “Life of a Freelance Game Composer.” With me are David Saulesco and Danny Baranowsky (Super Meat Boy) who help give additional insight. My panel was followed by another video by Zircon, Will Roget, Jimmy Hinson, and Jill Aversa which covered going into more mainstream works – their video should be up shortly. The other panel I hosted was “Indie Game Music 101,” which was hosted by myself, Danny Baranowsky, David Saulesco, Andy Aversa (Zircon), and Justin Johnson (Radio Free Gamer). That video should be up later this week.
If you’d like to check out more insights into composition you may enjoy reading my series on the Making of GunGirl 2 OST.
