The first event of the year is here and I am pleased to be partnering with Composium to present an exclusive Masterclass, “How To Start As a Video Game Composer.” This event I will be discussing the always infamous question, how I started out as a composer in the video game industry, software, my advice for young aspiring composers, and the history of video game music.

A NEW INTERVIEW has dropped! Enter “Chase Bethea: pursuing video game composition after being told it’s his calling for years”.

Great news! My talk “Composing Music for In- Game Islands, Subterranean Areas and Beyond” has been accepted this year by GameSound Con. Since we all know the climate of this year, the conference will be online. I believe a lot of people will benefit from this talk as it will showcase how to write four to six minutes of music without it being monotonous in loop form.
It is with great excitement to announce that have been hired by NIX HYDRA to compose their new game “Potions Please”.
