Composing for Video Games


This week, after briefly showing off some of the games from the weekend's Valentine's Game event, we were joined by Enrique Ponce!  As a professional soundtrack composer, he talked about his experience creating music for video games: the tools, the process, and the business.


His presentation slides are here!  He also shared one of his scores here, an example work-for-hire agreement here, and an example composer agreement here.  Thanks, Enrique!
