Interzone / Video game music
« on: November 03, 2010, 05:13:08 PM »
Some music critics are saying that the background music of the latest video games is the most sophisticated music yet written.

Item of evidence: The latest version of "Halo" is supposedly musically entrancing to an unprecedented degree.

General point: Video game music composers must meet this demand: the music must keep players entertained or in the moment, but must also have indefinite length of time in mind, because what takes one player a minute or two to accomplish, might stagger another player for 45 minutes or more.

The music must be flexible, listenable, adjustable, in a way that for example Mozart never had to think about.

So what do you folks think about this idea, that video games are challenging music composers in a new and different way??

I stumbled across this site and it has a ton of content, some of which seems quite interesting.  Then I came across what it had to say about ANUS:

"What is ANUS? Neither Freydis, Nihilism’s Home Page, nor CounterOrder.com are affiliated with ANUS, an acronym for American Nihilist Underground Society. They currently promote an unusual mixture of heavy metal music and extreme nationalism.

Further, ANUS, the Center for Nihilist and Nihilism Studies, and multiple connected Internet sites, most of which are false-fronts, are part of a deceptive effort to present an Internet presence that is larger and more important than it really is. The proponents behind these websites are not nihilists, nor are they likely any of the other labels they’ve claimed in their panoply of terminology, they’re simply race-based ultra-nationalists and the rest is window-dressing. This is the reason why it's so difficult to determine from superficial elements just what exactly ANUS and associated groups really represent. And it appears that they want to own and co-opt every kind of post-modern phraseology they can find so they can manipulate it towards their agenda. That’s not to say that their actual ideas and conclusions behind the smokescreen have no merit or shouldn’t be debated, rather that their approach is intentionally disingenuous and that raises serious questions as to the honesty and integrity of the source. Being ideologically motivated they are willing to place belief ahead of facts because for them to mislead is acceptable if it promotes their core values."
