Cris Velasco has earned a reputation for writing some really terrifying music, and that landed him a spot on the team composing the soundtrack for Resident Evil 7. Cris and I talked about what makes music scary, and how he created his horrifying cues for RE7, using a sound library that included strings, vocals, and buzzing beehives!
It took seven long years for Cris to land his first important composing gig, scoring a game version of Battlestar Galactica, so he wants to help the next generation of composers get their careers off to a great start with a workshop this summer in which he'll share what he's learned.
