We are living in a new golden age of video game music
More than twenty years ago, Donkey Kong Country taught me what the ocean sounds like. Its “Underwater Ambiance” is just that – drawn out, ambient sounds, melancholy minor chords and a relaxing melody at a leisurely beat. It captures perfectly what you see on screen; a level that isn’t beaten through quick reactions, but by floating towards your next target and seeing where the current takes you.
In my teens, I sang my first song at a karaoke competition – it was one of Hikaru Utada’s theme songs for Kingdom Hearts.
I have sat wet-eyed with nostalgia at a video game concert where my favourite music was played live to footage of someone playing the game and adapting to their choices.
