GameSpy Talks to Diablo II Composers
10:44 AM | Tom Bridge | Comment on this story
GameSpy.com has posted an interview with Blizzard music directors Jason, Matt and Glenn as part of their Masters of the Craft series. The audio engineers and composers discuss their musical craft and origins at Blizzard with GameSpy's Ryan Kelly. Here is an excerpt:
Matt: Preparation and inspiration are important, but if you don't "get" the concept behind a game within the first few moments of playing it, no amount of homework or self-motivation is likely to make the game fun or the creation of it very pleasant. Fortunately, all of the projects I have dealt with here at Blizzard North have been strong, focused ideas which were play-centered from the beginning. The music business definitely has parallels in the games industry in that survival largely depends on keeping the process fun and creative despite the distractions that both success and disappointment can throw at you.The interview is very compelling, giving a window into the creation of the soundtracks that make the gaming experience that much more enjoyable. If you haven't yet bought this game, but want to hear the work of these musical artists, visit the MP3 of the Week Archive at the Battle.net web site.
