Before we went on holiday break I had the privileged to sit down and talk with five video game music composers. Each one comes from varied backgrounds, and each has their own personal style. They give us insight in how they go about producing music for a game, as well as the challenges of their craft. Later on in the show, they ask questions of each other about working in collaborations and what programs they use.
Each of their names links to either their sound cloud profile, or where you can hear more of their music.

Shannon Mason – Blood Defender and Sapphire Skies
