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.

One won’t do and nine is not enough for me no! Well, that’s okay because as a video game composer, it is good to be busy! Announcing my semi-exclusive talk at the Audio Developers Conference next Thursday, November 19th.

Hello hello! This is kind of last minute. The Cue Tube has kindly reached out to ask me to be part of a Composer Roundtable for their LIVE YouTube channel event. I am very honored and humbled by the request as it somewhat comes out of no where.

A NEW INTERVIEW has dropped! Enter “Chase Bethea: pursuing video game composition after being told it’s his calling for years”. I have to admit I am most jubilant about this interview because it came by request. Anouk Dyussembayeva, CEO/Founder of Composium, reached out to me for an exclusive interview for her website.
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.
Greetings and Salutations – Video Game Composer, Chase Bethea. Yesterday I had the great privilege of being on IGN & Kinda Funny’s Platform at the same time through the live stream of The Guerilla Collective.

This specfic event was hosted by Justin Woodward and Alfonso Hooker from We Are Game Heads.
I am so excited to share my second Soundiron Demo with you. This piece was written with the intent of what I have not heard before but I am sure has been done. However, probably not written by a video game composer.
Back in July 2019, I reached out on Twitter to some journalists that might have been interested in covering a new angle of my career. A fresh voice of someone who is not involved with the game industry. Meet Katy Morgan. She did me the solid honor of a thorough interview and I may dare say my best yet. This piece took seven month to complete.
