In May of this year, CIMFest Director and GGDA Middle/South Chapter Member, Rodrigo Obando, reached out to me asking if I would be interested in speaking about video game soundtracks at CIMFest 2017 at Columbus State University. Anyone who knows me knows that I love video game soundtracks, and that I love talking about them, so of course I agreed to be a speaker.
The talk that I presented was about the functions of video game music. I presented some of my favorite game soundtracks as well as some of the most groundbreaking ones, and briefly talked about why these soundtracks enhance their games so much and why they are so memorable. It was a great time being able to share my appreciation for some of my favorite composers with others, and I look forward to being able to speak at other events in the future!
