Beeps, Boops, Strings
Jack works in his studio, prepping for the show. Tonight he played selections from Frogger and Pong for me. We laughed and did goofy jigs to them, and I tried to imagine what they will sound like when swelling string sections join their silly noodling melody lines. This is what people really think video game music still sounds like. The pity people used to take on me when I informed them that my husband was a video games composer... It was subtle, but palpable. The asthetics are still emerging, and there is inherent beauty in video game scores being produced today. I'm pleased as punch to be a part of it.
