    I thought people would be talking about that black midi stuff in this thread. I don't much about it cos I don't play these games but out of context what I've heard sounds more interesting than good.

    Never occurred to me that that Eski bleep sound is a video game sound.

    Where to start..

    Nick Dywer's Diggin in the Carts series has some great stuff on the Japanese pioneers

    Here's an interview with the incredibly humble but legendary British VGM composer Tim Follin from the Legacy Music Hour podcast
    This guys is totally revered today by anybody into early VGM, but he describes the reality of the job as sounding pretty lonely & unfulfilling. The industry was made to produce and sell games, the music seemed like very much an after thought.

    Here's an interview with Soshi Hosoi who brought Steve Reich minimalism into VGM https://daily.redbullmusicacademy.co...osoi-interview

    A couple of classic composers. Both these guys were not just composing and producing some amazing music for games but also they had to pioneer & design the individual sound from the ground up, because obviously they were writing the book as the went along, Tanaka even had the job of designing and programming the sound chip for the Game Boy & the SNES.

    Hirokazu Tanaka - Earthbound - SNES


    Tim Follin - LED Storm - Spectrum


    They may have just been trying to create their favoured genres within the limitations of the new technology and might not have realised it at the time, but they were creating a new form of electronic / techno music that was completely unique.

    the PS1 sound must have played some part in the development Grime sound, even if it was just indirect because it was so prevalent around that time, but also because the legend of early producers using Music 2000 to make beats.

    The Gunnm OSTs sound like a proto-grime soundscape to me.

    i was thinking of posting Legacy Music hour funny enough but i agree with what you say on Follin especially considering the joke with him is his music was often the best part of some really AWFUL games

    personal fav of mine

    also gotta give a shout out to Chris Hulsbeck

    I made a mix of pre2000 Grime inspired VGM tracks. I don't think i'm allowed to post it here, it's on youtube & can find it in the Events section.
