Level 35: Chance Thomas (LOTR Online, Faeria, Dota 2)
Chance Thomas is amazing. He has an admirable devotion to finding the right mix of instruments, textures, harmonies and melodies for his soundtracks.
For Lord of the Rings Online, he spent years dissecting the books to learn about the songs and music of each race in that world. You’ll hear how that all shook out in this episode.
He talks about other projects too; the online strategy card game, Faeria, drops later this month. Have you heard of The VOID? He did the music and worked on sound for that.
And he did a bunch of new music for Dota 2. (for some Dota 2 laughs, check this out from a couple years ago)
