Kicking off the month of April, we never could’ve anticipated such an opportunity here at GameTyrant, much less that I would be lucky enough to be the one to speak with video game history’s most celebrated composer. When you look back at any game you’ve ever played, you’d be hard pressed to find one soundtrack that hasn’t somehow been inspired by this legendary and universally revered artist.
“Every time I feel that pesky Impostor Syndrome coming on and I know I'm creating a blatant copy of his work,” says composer Chad Ludwig (Bad Dudes 4, Duck Hunt: The Reckoning), “I take a deep breath and realize it’s actually his very essence flowing through me like a cosmic, interdimensional revelation of musical creation.”
Video Games Live has denied any future possibility of performing his arrangements despite multiple requests from millions of diehard fans worldwide, claiming that “Only he could be worthy as conductor in a live performance, but the guy never answers his emails or phone calls. Like, ever.”
Without any further ado, I’m pleased to present the very pinnacle of my work as a games journalist and host of GameTyrant Audio. An opportunity like this may never come around again, and I’d be astronomically remiss to pass up this chance.
