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. The Guerilla Collective is an online digital games festival hosted by Greg Miller and produced by Media Indie Exchange (The MIX) with Kinda Funny Games Showcase. 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.
I am so grateful and elated to be one of the live performers at IndieCade this year. Major thanks to David Javelosa, former Audio Director at Sega of America and Game Industry Specialist for the Yamaha Corporation for the opportunity.
During the set-list, I performed pieces from the Aground soundtrack and some pieces from Deity Quest and Super Happy Fun Block.
I was given the pleasure and honor to be back on the “Level with Emily” Podcast with Emily Reese.
It is a great privilege to have been asked to come and speak on a panel at the Fall Experiment 2019! The Gaming, Music, Art and Tech Expo takes place at The Wisconsin Center on October 5th and 6th. The panel is titled ” The Future of Music in Gaming and E-Sports”
I had the great pleasure of being interviewed by Transverse Audio. The interview is short and sweet; five questions with some solid in-depth answers. I give my contrast of what it feels like between beginning, part-time, and full-time composing (Stress, workload, overall, work-life balance, etc.)
Podcast Matt Kenyon (Composer) and Host of the Composer Code invited me on to his podcast. Composer Code has been a podcast for a few years now. Interviewing new video game composers to AAA composers such as Gary Schyman, Gordy Haab and Grant Kirkhope.
