KVGM "The Last Wave" (7/5/20)

KVGM podcast radio smooth jazz The Last Wave vgm video game music


Do you hear that sound? Can you feel it? The cool ocean breeze in your hair, the salt on your tongue. It's the smooth crash of the Last Wave on KVGM with your host, Hammock, bringing you thirty minutes of the best video game jams(z) from all your favorite composers and consoles, each and every week from our beachside studio on sunny Aqua City Island. Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch...the Last Wave.

A lot of unknowns this week...but that's life, you know. Plenty of unknown variables. It keeps things interesting but can also be frustrating when all you want are answers. So who can you turn to? Baseball? D.D. Crew? Katsuhiro Hayashi? I don't know. But what I do know is that if it's smooth jams you're looking for, the Last Wave provides!

Episode 58: Run & Gun with Dan Laughton

Podcast VGM amiga blazing chrome contra mega man the vgmbassy video game music

From some of the earliest days of video gaming, running and shooting has been an integral part of the industry’s repertoire. From the fast-paced gameplay, to the imaginative and screen-filling bosses, to the aggressive and driving soundtracks, run & gun titles were designed to give the player a mental and physical workout. Today, Ed invites speedrunner, parenting podcast host, and good friend Dan Laughton back to the show to check out some music from one of his favorite speedrunning genres. From the classic NES soundtracks of Contra and Mega Man to the modern sounds of Blazing Chrome, the intense tunes just don’t stop on this one!

Podcasts Rock Out With Your Cart Out Dean Evans jason arriola Podcast ROWYCO SNES Super Nintendo video game music video game music podcast video game soundtrack waterworld

Sometimes something comes up and disrupts your plans. Well, this is exactly one of those instances. I had something entirely different planned for this episode, but then Dean Evan’s Waterworld soundtrack landed in my lap and I had to talk about it. Also, go check out his YouTube channel. He’s uploaded a few of his soundtracks there and it would probably be nice for the artist himself to actually get the views if you’re going to listen to his stuff.

The Videri String Quartet's Unique Contest For Our Pandemic Time

Many musicians have said that life as they knew it ended when the COVID-19 quaratines began. The Videri String Quartet has come up with a unique way to relfect these times. They're welcoming arrangements for string quartet of music from video games that relate in some way to a plague, post-apocalyptic times, or a disruption of everyday life in some way, with a competition they've titled Quarantets . There's a generous prize for the winning arrangement, and royalties from the recording sales for every arrangement that's chosen to create a digital album that will be released this December. All the details are on the Videri's website. Some of the games that focus on these themes are Days Gone, The Last of Us, Dark Souls and Deus Ex Human Revolution, just to name a few. Members of the quartet, violinist Matheus Souza, violist Rosie Samter, and cellist Jeremiah Barcus will be joined for this project by violinist Eli Bishop, one of the original members of the quartet. They're all looking

Edward Patrick White Balances 'Gears' Legacy Music And Creates Something New For 'Tactics'

Gears Tactics is set twelve years before the original and now iconic Gears of War . Cities on the planet Sera are begininning to fall prey to a terrible threat emerging from underground, and it falls to reluctant hero Gabe Diaz to command his squad to defeat the Locust Hoarde. Tactics composer Edward Patrick White says his memories of playing the first Gears game, in a nearly-empty flat save for his Xbox and a kitten, infused his soundtrack. Edward says the consistent style that every Gears soundtrack has is the slightly-off, not-quite-right melodies and harmonies, that give the sense of the world of the game being broken. Edward created a unique sound for his score by not only using a full orchestra, but also creating sounds from whatever he had on hand, including his daughter's singing. Edward had so much fun working the developers at Splash Damage, he says he'd sign up for a second tour in a second! The Gears Tactics soundtrack is available now, and Edward says a vinyl release with

This week Rob and Pernell look at the roots of this bare-knuckled genre and follow its evolution to where it is today. What made early beat'em-ups so much fun to kids? What is keeping them relevant today? Who composed the theme song to Perfect Strangers and how are these things related? They may not be. Right? Okay now I'm just talking to myself.

Episode 64 :: NieR: Automata / NieR Gestalt & Replicant

What is Video Game Grooves? Is it a perfect circle, destined to have no begihttp://videogamegrooves.com/2020/06/22/episode-64-nier-automata-nier-gestalt-replicant-box-setnning or end? Is it a planar spiral, swirling against entropy ever inward toward an imperfect concentric point of consciousness? No. It is a podcast about video game soundtracks on vinyl that you will make a part of you, forever. This week we dive very deep into the NieR: Automata / NieR Gestalt & Replicant box set from Square-Enix. Paul and Anthony take the lead on this millennia-spanning endeavor, plumbing the depths of meaning from Yoko Taro’s inscrutible oeuvre. We take meaning from the music and from the story, exploring themes of consciousness of communication, and we mispronounce ALL of it.

Next we keep you in the know about the new releases and crowdfunding efforts in the world of vinyl. You might say that we keep your heart and mind rich, but your wallet poor. Sorry about that.

Finally we discuss our relationship with video game music, or soundtracks in general, and what it means for us when we do or don’t have a personal context with the music. There may or may not be a rant about “VGM.” Anime fans and VGM community, direct your angry letters to Jeremy Anthony and Paul [-ed.]

KVGM podcast radio smooth jazz The Last Wave vgm video game music video games


Do you hear that sound? Can you feel it? The cool ocean breeze in your hair, the salt on your tongue. It's the smooth crash of the Last Wave on KVGM with your host, Hammock, bringing you thirty minutes of the best video game jams(z) from all your favorite composers and consoles, each and every week from our beachside studio on sunny Aqua City Island. Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch...the Last Wave.

This week, we've got vampire romance, Yuzo Koshiro clubbin' it up, fast food delivery, and hanafuda, plus butt battles on the beach and Peter Park starring in Saved by the Bell. If none of that makes sense to you, listen to the show...because it's chock full of sweet and sour jams. I've also got some ideas brewing for some possible mini-episodes somewhere down the line...I don't, maybe a Patreon exclusive type situation but then again, you shouldn't have to pay for smooth video game music. HAPPY DAD DAY!

NNR Reruns: C1E47a "Turbotastic" - orig released 09/12/19

In delayed celebration of the delayed release of the Turbografx16 mini / PC Engine mini / CoreGrafx mini, our rerun this month will not be one episode, but three - each part of our three part mini-series on the TG16 / PC Engine from September of last year, which was made in conjunction with Bryce Dumond of the Turbotastic Podcast (a fantastic TG16/PCE "game by game" pod). The only difference being that instead of running them parts 1, 2, and 3, we are running them part 3, 2, and 1. This was originally planned for March, and planned to have part 1's rerun date coincide with the release of the mini on it's original release date of 03/19/20 as something of a "grand finale". When COVID pushed back the system's release indefinitely, it scrubbed this rerun scheme along with it. When the system finally did launch last month, it was with insufficient head's up to allow for my mini-series rerun scheme to materialize. So, here in June is our first opportunity. I hope you will accept / indulge the mulligan, enjoy the episodes if you've never heard them before...and enjoy them anew if you have.

Please note that due to the attached ear catcher at the beginning regarding Best of 2019, the time stamps in the track list will be off by a minute, minute and a half. Up against a deadline to put this down for a couple months, I did not have time to update the time stamps accordingly. They're still reasonably close, I suppose. :-)

Cheers!

Nintendo created the GameCube to compete directly with Microsoft’s Xbox and Sony’s powerhouse PlayStation 2.

There are some real hidden gems in here, so get those ears ready!

Puzzles - Episode 21

Episode 21 The boys area a bit puzzled this time. All the tracks from this episode are from puzzle games and so that means... well surprisingly some really good background bass, and hardcore tunes. Some of these tracks are rocking, some are calming, but all of them are very good. We have a good mixture of ones that might be obvious and expected and some really surprising ones from both Matt and Derek this time

Michael Gordon Shapiro's Fantasy-Inspired Soundtrack For 'Down The Rabbit Hole'

Down the Rabbit Hole , a new virtual reality game by Coretopia Studios, takes to Wonderland before Alice ever visited, and it's just as strange! Composer Michael Gordon Shapiro says creating a musical signature for the game as well as the beloved characters was a really satisfying challenge.

We couldn't have covered so much about the system without the help of our friend and special guest: Michael Bridgewater! Not only does he join us to provide color on the hardware and tricks used to compose these tunes, but every track on today's episode was recorded direct from his original C64 hardware!

B-side :: Knight of the Round

Show notes and gallery: http://videogamegrooves.com/2020/06/07/b-side-knight-of-the-round/

A new B-Side is fresh from the boat, and this time we’re summoning Knight of the Round for a discussion of their newest release, Seven. Band promoter Kyle Gaddo joins Anthony and Jeremy to explore the phenomenon of Final Fantasy cover music, and heavy metal game cover music in general. Band frontman Justin Taylor gives some insight into the composition process for Seven and provides details about the creation of the album and the process of making a vinyl release happen. We also have a chance to listen to a ton of heavy / pensive / outrageous / stompy / portentous metal. The band is looking to tour again soon when conditions allow, but you should consider supporting them so that you know the lyrics to One-Winged Angel to sing along when Knight of the Round comes to your town!

NNR Reruns: C1E47c: "Tidal Wavetable" (aka 'The Continuing Adventures of Buzz Lightyear')" - orig released 09/26/19

In delayed celebration of the delayed release of the Turbografx16 mini / PC Engine mini / CoreGrafx mini, our rerun this month will not be one episode, but three - each part of our three part mini-series on the TG16 / PC Engine from September of last year, which was made in conjunction with Bryce Dumond of the Turbotastic Podcast (a fantastic TG16/PCE "game by game" pod). The only difference being that instead of running them parts 1, 2, and 3, we are running them part 3, 2, and 1. This was originally planned for March, and planned to have part 1's rerun date coincide with the release of the mini on it's original release date of 03/19/20 as something of a "grand finale". When COVID pushed back the system's release indefinitely, it scrubbed this rerun scheme along with it. When the system finally did launch last month, it was with insufficient head's up to allow for my mini-series rerun scheme to materialize. So, here in June is our first opportunity. I hope you will accept / indulge the mulligan, enjoy the episodes if you've never heard them before...and enjoy them anew if you have.

Please note that due to the attached ear catcher at the beginning regarding Best of 2019, the time stamps in the track list will be off by a minute, minute and a half. Up against a deadline to put this down for a couple months, I did not have time to update the time stamps accordingly. They're still reasonably close, I suppose. :-)

Cheers!

Episode 56: Katamari A-Go-Go with The Diad

Podcast VGM katamari senor coconut the vgmbassy video game music yu miyake

The colorful and innovative Katamari Damacy was released on the PS2 in 2004. The game casts the player as the diminutive Prince, rolling a sticky ball around the landscape, collecting objects to become bigger and bigger. What seems like a simple concept captured the attention of gamers all around the world, and the series quickly became popular. Ed and returning VGMbassador Ben (aka The Diad) were huge fans of the game and the fun dynamic soundtracks they included. Today’s VGMbassy includes the history of the games, a wealth of information on the Japanese celebrities who produced and sung the amazing tracks, and a fair amount of nostalgic musings about the game. Let’s roll up some fun!


A huge thank you to Indira J (The Misadventures of Buddy and Friend, Sacrimony) for the amazing VGMbassy artwork and design, and to Trevin Hughes (aka chiptune composer Jredd) for the podcast theme song!

Do you hear that sound? Can you feel it? The cool ocean breeze in your hair, the salt on your tongue. It's the smooth crash of the Last Wave on KVGM with your host, Hammock, bringing you thirty minutes of the best video game jams(z) from all your favorite composers and consoles, each and every week from our beachside studio on sunny Aqua City Island. Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch...the Last Wave.

Summer is approaching, the weather is heating up, the jams are already hot, but at the same time, very chill. It's the perfect balance. My wife and I are embarking on a journey into the desert of Aqua City Island - Crimson Sands, to be exact - for a little exploration and soul connection. Social distancing, if you will...well, minus my wife. But I hope you all enjoy these jams in my absence!

Ian Chen's Fantastic Soundtrack For 'Fantastic Creatures'

Composer Ian Chen says writing the soundtrack for the Chinese mythology-inspired Fantastic Creatures by Blue Callisto Studios was a dream project because he combined his love of traditional Chinese instruments with the myths he listened to as a child and his love of real-time strategy games. He enjoyed the challenge of combining traditional Chinese instruments with Western ones to bring out the best qualities of both. Fantastic Creatures uses Chinese myths of creation and destruction to give the player a choice to bring the desolate world back to live, or destroy evertying. Ian says he enjoyed giving a musical voice to the ancient gods and godesses whose stories he learned as a child. Ian's soundtrack was nominated for Game Music of the Year by the Game Audio Network Guild. Although it didn't receive the award, Ian says it was an amazing honor to have his first full-length game score recognized alongside those of established game composers. And it's whetted his appetite to write more

Nerd Noise Radio Reruns BONUS: Channel F Introduction / Christmas 1992 Memoir (orig release 12/24/2017)

In celebrating my receipt of the all-new Turbografx16 Mini yesterday, I thought that I would share my own personal Turbografx story from my childhood. Unfortunately, I don't have a recording that is nothing by the TG story. But what I do have is the Channel F Introduction post, which not only contains my TG16 story (centered around Christmas 1992 / December 2000), but also my "NES Story" - Christmas 1989, which, apart from the simply terrible production value as my very first release (even before the release of Episode 1) is just an incredible story! And in my opinion, the Christmas 92 story is not that far behind it in terms of story worthiness.

I don't know whether I'd stand behind every single word I say in this recording, but I know one thing that hasn't diminished is my love for the TG16 / PC Engine. In fact, as a make-up for not doing this in March, I believe our rerun cycle for June will also center around the TG16...specifically, a certain mini-series co-starring Bryce Dumond of the Turbotastic Podcast!

Stay Tuned!

Meanwhile, enjoy this surprise bonus rerun - a surprise even to me, as I had not planned to do this until I had the Mini hooked up, and was playing through game after game of greatness! Whether you're a TG16 veteran, have only had the most fleeting brushes with it, have never played one....or perhaps have not even heard of it, you owe it to yourself to try it out! If you've got a spare $100 laying about, I STRONGLY recommend you pick up one of your own!

Cheers!

David Housden's Soundtrack For 'Lost Words: Beyond The Page' Is An Emotional Journey

In Lost Words: Beyond the Page, Izzy deals with her grandmother's illness by writing her thoughts in her journal. As the game progresses and it's clear that her gran's illness is quite serious, Izzy's journal becomes an escape as she creates the fantasy world of Estoria. David Housden created a soundtrack that partners perfectly with this emotional story. David says he looked to films by Pixar, Dream Works and Studio Ghibli for inspiration for the emotionally difficult experience young Izzy is going through. To help with the process of writing music for orchestra, piano and voice, David tapped his good friend and fellow composer Gareth Coker and his team for orchestration. At Gareth's suggestion, David approached the developers with the possiblity of the outstanding Nashville Scoring Orchestra recording the soundtrack at Ocean Way Studios, something that really makes the music come alive. David also worked with wind virtuoso Kristin Naigus and classically trained singer Elizabeth

Episode 51 – Yooka-Laylee Back to the Fluture

Composer Interview VGM David Wise DavidWise Grant Kirkhope GrantKirkhope Podcast XVGM Radio Yooka-Laylee

Ep51

Download the Episode

When Playtonic Games set out to develop a new 3D Action Platformer in the vein of Donkey Kong Country and Banjo Kazooie, they went back to the original composers who made those games sound so fantastic: David Wise (DKC) and Grant Kirkhope (BK.) But how did those games influence the sound with this new franchise that’s been born out of a love and labor of the 64 bit era? Today on XVGM Radio, we’re lucky to have both David Wise AND Returning guest/Composer Grant Kirkhope on the show to talk about the musical evolution from Donkey Kong, to Banjo-Kazooie, and finally, how those two influenced Yooka Laylee and Yooka Laylee & The Impossible Lair. From Mike trying to make sense of musical genres (and trying not to fanboy too much), to David and Grant uncovering some information about Grant’s hiring process that they’d never known, to Justin sharing his fascination with Wild West VGM, get ready to collect DK Coins, Bananas, Jiggies, and Pagies on this star-studded interview from XVGM Radio!
HUGE thank you to Materia Collective and Jayson from Scarlet Moon Productions for helping with setup for the interviews. You can get the high quality soundtracks to both Yooka Laylee games on Materia Collective’s pages here:

Nerd Noise Radio RERUNS: "C1E44: TwoFer Tuesday - vol 5" (orig. released 05/07/2019)

With today's rerun, I wanted to provide the listener with a taste of "normalcy". We haven't had a truly "normal" episode since at least C1E48 (October 2018), and arguably.....not since this episode first released almost exactly one year ago. It's been a wonderful year for the show in terms of innovative, ambitious, and quality output. But it's been a terrible year for the show in terms of giving newcomers an idea of what to expect from it.

So let's get back to center with today's Rerun: C1E44: TwoFer Tuesday - vol 5.

For the newcomers, a "TwoFer Tuesday" is a free play (no theme), but in pairs. So, two pieces from each game. This is our most recent TwoFer Tuesday episode. Also, over on our secondary "dedicated reruns feed"....unsurprisingly called "Nerd Noise Radio Reruns", I am sharing our very first TwoFer Tuesday - C1E4, all the way back from February 2017. Not only are both well known and beloved episodes, both both episodes saw heavy feature in our recent Backtracks series. But most of all, I wanted to be able to use the two episodes to demonstrate the paradox of how very much, and yet how very little the show has moved in its time. On how much we've improved - especially in terms of intro/outro production, and yet, just how true to ourselves we have remained. I feel like these two are separated by a "paper thin grand canyon", the tiniest of differences......the hugest of differences.

I hope you'll enjoy both! Here's the link to that rerun:
