Ontological Geek Podcast Ep. 1

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Digital Media & Videogames, Music

With my fel­low writer at The Onto­lo­gical Geek, Aaron Gotzon, I’ve been work­ing on set­ting up a reg­u­lar pod­cast ded­ic­ated to games, with a par­tic­u­lar focus on music and drama in games. Our first epis­ode went up last month, and we’re aim­ing to make the pod­cast a reg­u­lar fea­ture.
The first epis­ode focuses on the music of com­poser Chris Chris­to­doulou, spe­cific­ally his soundtrack for the game Risk of Rain. We also dis­cuss the musical trope gen­er­ally known as the ‘one woman wail’ and delib­er­ate a bit about where it came from and how it works.
