Matthew Sweet’s BBC Radio 3 programme ‘Sound of Cinema’ visited Stephen’s studio in Chichester to look at how you set about composing music for a video game. In the programme, entitled ‘Video Game Music: Lines, Loops and Layers’ Stephen outlines some of the unique techniques the medium demands.
Stephen said: “Matthew’s visit is a follow up programme to the BBC Radio 3 broadcast I did from the V&A Museum in October last year. It was a pleasure to take him through the creative process which leads to a successful video game sound track. The success of a video game is not simply down to its look – sound and music play an invaluable role in building excitement, drama and tension and in fully-engaging the gamer.”
‘Video Game Music: Lines, Loops and Layers’ can be listened to on the BBC Radio 3 website.
