Eastshade, a game about how art can impact people's lives, is set to be released later this year. Composer Phoenix Glendinning is busy writing the music that brings the world to life. I talked with him about how the landscape of the game's world provides inspiration both for Eastshade, and its prequel, Leaving Lyndow.

Conductor Amy Andersson is shaking things up (in a good way) in the classical music world, and in live performances of music from video games! Most recently, she was one of the conductors who presented a spectacular concert in Sofia, Bulgaria, of music from Uncharted, Diablo, World of Warcraft, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture and many others. In our conversation, Amy says she's so proud to be able to perform music from games for a live audience, and we talked about her Orchestra Moderne as well.

It's been a big year for the Role Playing Game Divinity Original Sin 2 by Larian Studios. The game was awarded a BAFTA for Best Role Playing Game, and composer Borislav Slavov was nominated for a Game Audio Network Guild Award for his soundtrack!

As Bungie was scaling up the many new worlds players visit in Destiny 2, it became clear very fast that the music team needed a better and faster way of implementing  the hours of music needed to enhance all the experiences players have exploring, in missions and strikes, and in the Crucible.
