Level 218: Rob Kovacs (Straylight)

We’ve had composer Rob Kovacs on Level in the past to talk about his alter ego, 88bit.

This time, he’s here to discuss his Prophet 5 modern 80s soundtrack for the VR game Straylight, and I love every minute of it.

The music is fantastic, and Rob sits at his piano during our chat to demonstrate some of the musical choices he made. It was so much fun!

You can support Rob in many ways, whether on his Patreon, on Twitch, Bandcamp and many other places!
