What We Discuss

We discuss about the importance of music in a game. Game music can be the game’s mechanic itself, or become the identity of the game. Also, game music can be the emotion bringer for the gamer, the suitable music with the event or the character can improve the immersion of gamer when they are playing the game. Don’t forget, a good game music should be researched and discussed well before it is started to be written.

To reply the question about where to start when compose a music for a game. Some of the composers starts the music from the melody, but some others starts from the beat. However, all of the composers need a clear brief or if exist the game video, so the music could suit better with the game.

We hope that this talk show can bring knowledge for all of the audience.
