Video Game Soundtrack

Anyone who has ever played a video game, either on the couch at home, on-line or (back in the dark ages) in a bricks-and-mortar arcade knows that the sounds of the game are vital to its enjoyment.

In addition to sound effects and the various beeps and squeaks, many video games have developed their sound stage to such a degree that composing music for games has become a lucrative musical activity of significant status. It even has its own area of academic study and research, called Ludomusicology.

What fans of Video Game Music know is that some brilliant albums have appeared, particularly over the past decade, featuring new and exciting music often in the Electronic genre. Grab your console and check it out.
