Hello, patrons and friends!
This week features composer Chase Bethea. Chase and I talked about four of his video game scores. I love the variety in all four of the soundtracks, and I’m confident you’ll hear more from Chase in the future.
Deity Quest is a Pokeman-esque RPG with bright colors and a noble, 8- & 16-bit inspired score. I Can’t Escape: Darkness is terrifying, and Chase mentions the early Tomb Raider scores by Nathan McCree, Akira Yamaoka’s Silent Hill 2, Jason Graves’s Dead Space score and the Thief scores by Eric Brosius.
ALL GOOD STUFF. And you’ll hear clips from all of that in the episode.
Also, I share a bit about the good times had by all in L.A. for the Call of Duty: Black Ops III seminar, and how nice it was to see Greg Edmonson (Firefly, Uncharted), Boris Salchow (Resistance 2 & 3, Sunset Overdrive) and Austin Wintory (Journey, The Banner Saga, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate) at the event.
There’s seriously so much good music in this episode. SO. MUCH.
