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:

Episode 63 :: Namco Game Music Vol 2, Suite Dragon Quest 2

It’s been a while since you’ve had a dose of that ancient far-east fare, so we are bringing it back in style in another great episode. This time we are joined again by Frederik Lauridsen of Blipblop.net to feature some of the very earliest video game music on vinyl record with Namco Game Music Vol. 2, one of those good old G.M.O. Records releases. Specifically we focus on a little-known game called Youkai Douchuuki, and hear a number of selections from a hell-themed arcade game and talk about how the earliest game music came to turntables in Japan. Next, we have a very special fulfillment of Anthony’s long-time dream to feature Suite Dragon Quest II, also a Japanese oldie, but it’s specifically the B-side we want. We sit down for a truly mammoth 25 minute listening session for the entire reverse side of the Dragon Quest album which features an arranged “sound story” of the Famicom game from beginning to end. We spend some time talking about the kinds of creativity in arrangements like this that we just don’t see these days, although a glimmer of it exists in recent performances and upcoming releases.

We move on to those new releases and announcements with trepidation. It’s been an expensive couple of weeks for some of us… how about you? Links below in case you need to catch up on some of those soon-to-be-hard-to-find items. A vinyl collector’s work is never done, it seems.

Concluding a 2-part solo series focusing on obscure and failed CD-based consoles, Ed takes his 3DO off the shelf, dusts off the cobwebs, and delves into some of the music from games exclusive to the platform. There’s a lot to be explored here, with some extremely unique and memorable tunes that you may be hearing for the first time! From games with rockin’ music like Autobahn Tokio, the atmospheric dystopian beats of Iron Angel of the Apocalypse, or the playful industrial of Gridders, you’ll find a bunch of surprises and maybe a few new favorites!

Peter McConnell's 1928 Banjo Gives 'Plants Vs. Zombies' A 'Down Home' Vibe

Award-winning composer Peter McConnell is no stranger to the world of Plants vs. Zombies . Battle for Neighborville is his third soundtrack for the series. He's also no stranger to the banjo! He's been playing since he was 13, but when he spied a gorgeous 1928 Gibson five-string in a music store he regularly haunts, he knew it would be perfect for the Cheese Mines levels in the game. Peter gave the whole soundtrack a real roots feel, also using a slide guitar. He even wrote his own, in his words, "earnest" folk song, Where Have All the Plants Gone , inspired by legendary folksinger Joan Baez, who's actually a neighbor. Because Plants vs. Zombies Battle for Neighborville is a science fiction game at heart, Peter also added plenty of classic synths. He says the developers at Pop Cap also suggested the sound of the score for The Time Machine, based on the novel by H.G. Wells. Peter says getting the right emotion in his music for a game keeps the writing interesting, whether it's the

My wife always seems to hit me with her special "on accident" and gulps down food at FULL HEALTH! Good grief...but the soundtrack has some jams that will definitely be making an appearance on the Last Wave, get ready.

Kenny Wood And Igor Nemirovsky's Music Goes Large In 'Amoeba Battle'

Amoeba Battle, a real time strategy game, gives teams of players a chance to save the world, defeating one virus at a time. Composers Kenny Wood and Igor Nemirovsky were encouraged by developer Grab Games to create music that gives an epic scale to the microscopic world the amoebas inhabit. Players in Amoeba Battle can explore different worlds, and adapt their army of amoebas to the different enemies they encounter. Kenny and Igor say the developers at Grab Games provided lots of inspiration for the various enviroments. Amoeba Battle has been in development since 2011, and both Kenny and Igor say it's been a great experience to revisit the music they wrote all those years ago and adapt it to the finished game. They're planning to release a soundtrack in the near future as well. Episode tracklist: All tracks performed by Kenny Wood and Igor Nemirovsky Amoeba Battle: Kenny Wood: Battle 2 Igor Nemirovsky: Obsidian Peak Kenny Wood: Final Battle Igor Nemirovsky: Mushroom Kingdon; Primorial

Channel F - Backtracks: The OTHER 50!

[edit: A technical glitch I caught fairly quickly: if you go to listen to this, and it stops about an hour and 44 minutes in, and/or the timestamps behave all weirdly, delete it, mark it unread, and download it again, then you'll get the full episode....first timer blues, we'll call it.] :-)

You are tuned to Nerd Noise Radio – Channel F. Today’s “F-isode” is significant not only for being only the second F-isode we’ve had in over a year, when they used to be quite a bit more common, but is also significant for being the first ever production of Nerd Noise Radio of any type to be produced entirely on Linux. Historically, the show has been produced on Mac. With a small backlog of previously-produced, but not-yet-released music blocks that were, of course, produced on the Mac still in reserve for future episodes, it will be some time yet before the Mac presence fades from the show completely. But it is my hope to do the lion’s share of future all-new production on Linux moving forward. So, the shift will be a glide, rather than a snap. But that shift starts...here.

Longtime listeners of the show will know full well what a Channel F F-isode is, but a pair of really beautiful things happened early this month which will have brought new attention to the show, from faces as near and dear as my fellow Des Moinesers (and surrounding communities), to as far-flung as Linux fans all the world over. For an explanation of what Channel F is, and how it relates to Nerd Noise Radio as a whole for the newcomers, as well as the details of who and what the new faces are, and how all that came about, see below. Also, for a descripton of how this F-isode relates to our April Fool’s episode, “Backtracks”, see the blog....or just sit, back, relax, and enjoy, as you listen to.....”The OTHER 50”!

Timestamps provided, but track details withheld for now in case anyone wanted to play the guessing game on the tracks. A follow-up blog post on April 30th will provide the entire track list information for both Backtracks and for today’s outing. So, be on the lookout for that.

In the meantime, enjoy!

About the new faces: Jeff Pitts of Des Moines Cityview Magazine did a mini-vignette on four local podcasters, and reached out to me to be one of them. The mini-article appears in the April Issue of the magazine which can be viewed online (Link below). In addition to that, Jason Evangelho, a tech-writer for Forbes Magazine who focuses on Linux very generously boosted my tweets about my first production in Linux, which went on to become the most liked and retweeted tweet in my history on the platform. I make it a point to look at “the numbers” as little as possible, so I don’t know how many (if any) of the new faces stuck around. But certainly a number of them at least had a peek. If you are a new face, either brought to the show through the Cityview article, or through Jason’s buff of my tweet, get a hold of me to let me know you’re here!

Presuming we did have at least a few stick around, I should give an explanation of what Channel F is, relative to Channel 1, and Archive Super Bonuses, so you know how this show works. I will do so at length on the blogspot version of this episode, where the blog format is more accommodating of lengthiness. But I will give you a brief overview here:

Channel 1: This is “the show proper”. These are “the actual episodes”. On average, 10 fresh episodes a year (with reruns to fill in the blanks). Other than extraordinary circumstances, they follow a standard “enhanced mixtape” format: a short, semi-standard intro, and standard housekeeping outro bookending a winding, twisting journey through sound. We have had quite the spate of non-standard “Channel 1” Episodes of late though, so for the newcomers, I wanted to stress what “normal” looks like. We don’t anticipate having anything else non-standard for several months moving forward.

Channel F: This is my side-outlet for bonuses, betas, extras. It can be virtually anything. And additional mixtape music block (like today), but has been all sorts of things. We even had one that was an exposition on a certain episode’s outro. Anything that doesn’t fit in Channel 1, but that I still want to have full attention (podcast feed, blog, social media, Archive.org, etc) becomes a Channel F “F-isode”.

Super Bonuses: These are for the times where I have something that I felt was worth producing, and felt was worth putting out there, but did not want to clog up the podcast feed, or the blog, or social media with. Generally, it takes the form of remixes and twists on existing content. Since they only come out on Archive, and not anywhere else, and since they’re not really advertised, this creates a nice “underground” quality to them. I usually drop hints inside Episodes and F-isodes if there are any Super Bonuses planned. But beyond that, a person just needs to know to be on the lookout. They will release even less consistently than F-isodes, but will also tend to be in bursts around certain episodes that are rich for alternate twists on their content.

See the blogspot version of this episode if you’d like to know more about these. Link below. Meanwhile, our next all-new episode is planned for August, though I do have some really great reruns lined up for the months between. Even those will still constitute much more of a “return to normalcy” for the show than what our past several months of fresh content offers, so a great chance to “get to know us” I hope you will enjoy! We also have a secondary podcast feed which is dedicated entirely to reruns, which will feature reruns different than the ones on the main feed, if you wish to explore even more Nerd Noise Radio history. It can be found on your podcatcher of choice by the name “Nerd Noise Radio Reruns”.

Cheers!

Episode 62 :: Mega Man 1-11: The Collection

Rotating like the seasons in the ambiguous and overwrought ending of Mega Man 2, the turntable has again come round to another episode of Video Game Grooves. No reason to despair, we’re not dead (unlike Mega Man at the end of Mega Man 2), but rather we’re here for another episode of our famously overwrought podcast for you to enjoy! This time we get equipped with guest host Brock Wilbur, as he takes a breather from releasing his new book in the Boss Fight Books series, this time about Postal!

In this episode we take a new tack with our feature as we devote our entire session to Mega Man 1-11: The Collection from Laced Records. We get to take our time and get out into the weeds with some of the more admirable traits of a “full series” musical take on Mega Man, but of course there are always some oddball robot masters in the attic, and we trot them out for all to see. We discuss the breadth of the iconic series and delve into some of the more obscure areas of the series, developmentally and musically. Anthony, Brock, Paul and Jeremy all have their particular spins on the records AND the robots of one of Capcom’s flagship series… we just hope we’re doing it all in the right order.

After the feature, we head into news and new releases, deftly getting you the info you need to justify your expenses to whatever degree you choose or don’t… it’s enabling behavior, we know, but it’s just one more service we provide to you. Finally, we get out of robot mode and sit down to talk about our feelings, and just what (emotionally-speaking) draws us to our record shelf instead of other outlets for passing time. We learn a lot about life, love, and each other. And we hope you do too.

Outro: “Staff Roll” – Mega Man 10

Episode 53: NEO GEO CD

Podcast VGM baseball stars 2 neo geo neo geo cd snk the vgmbassy video game music

SNK’s Neo-Geo game platform was an absolute monster. Designed as an arcade system which allowed fans to purchase identical titles for their homes, it featured an enormous memory capacity, huge, colorful, and well-animated sprites, and some amazing music thanks to its robust YM2610 sound chip. All of this came at quite a cost though; in the US, gamers were faced with a $700 console and over $200 per game!

How did SNK try and increase their market share? By releasing the Neo-Geo CD, a new console with internals nearly identical to the cart-based version, but with games on far less expensive CD-ROMs. It had quite a few drawbacks, but the cool thing about it was the music — most of the CD-based games included new, arranged versions of the original tunes! On today’s show, Ed takes a look at some of the games that the Neo Geo CD had to offer, along with a direct comparison of their arranged soundtracks to the originals. Which versions do you like better?

Winifred Phillips' Score Adds '60s Cool To 'Spyder'

The spy-thriller, Spyder , from studio Sumo Digital, is an homage to a classic genre that had its golden age in the 1960s. The Apple Arcade game features an adorable mechanical spider, Agent 8, created like one of James Bond's gadgets, that players control during missions that are increasingly dangerous. Composer Winifred Phillips created the perfect '60s and early '70s inspired soundtrack, featuring elements of jazz, orchestral, and even early synth rock sounds. She says doing the research by reviewing classic spy and adventure films and TV shows helped her keep the score pitch-perfect. Winifred says the first music she wrote for Spyder was the trailer soundtrack, which encapsulates lots of aspects of the game: suspense, heroics, and Agent 8's confident swagger. Winifred's insightful articles about writing game soundtracks appear regularly on Gamasutra, and her sessions at the annual Game Developers Conference are among the most well-attended. She was planning to present a session

Oda Tilset Sees Computer-Generated Music As A Tool, Not A Threat

At this year's (now postponed) Game Developers Conference, composer and sound designer Oda Tilset planned to present a session about how incorporating music created by a computer's Artificial Intelligence can be a useful tool. Oda tells me that AI-generated music is really helpful to generate ideas that a composer might not have thought of. For musicians and composers who are just getting their feet wet with computer-generated music software, Oda reccommends Noknok Audio , which is very flexible and easy to use. One of the murkier aspects of using AI to create music is who owns the end product. Oda has studied numerous user agreements for sharing audio and music, including SoundCloud and there's no clear answer. She says the best part of using AI is that it's like having a collaborator without those painful discssions about whose ideas are better! Episode tracklist All tracks composed by Oda's computer AI, modified in her digital audio workstation. Thanks to Dick Roberts for production

Ep49

Download the Episode

Growing up in the 1980s, Justin and Mike latched onto tons of different IPs in various incarnations. From cartoons to movies and even commercials, the nostalgia of the 80s has never burned brighter for our generation. Even newer generations are looking back at the 1980s for everything from fashion to music. On this week’s show, the XVGM boys are listening to music from video games that took their licenses from the 1980s. With a surprising amount of sock hop 50s tunes, synth hits and blazing guitars, there’s a wide variety to listen to as Mike and Justin chat about the cartoons, movies, commercials and toys that made them who they are today! Plus, embarrassing stories, not watching the classics, and pizza requests, it’s gonna be a tubular audio journey!
*Note: The audio on this episode (regarding Justin’s voice) was partly caused by the Stay-At-Home restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic. We had to scramble in order to record this in time when the restriction was placed. However, we’ve adjusted how future episodes will sound during this time, so please keep that in mind when listening and note that Episode 50 and beyond will sound much better! Thanks for understanding during this crazy time!*

Wow this episode flies off into outer space in a hurry! Our topic is games that we played from a genre that we don't normally play, so some of us bring a favorite from outside our typical genre. Some of us bring a game that we rented when we were young that turned out to age terribly. And some of us bring hentai games to our normally non-perverted show. Combine all that flummoxing content with the excessive drinking taking place during week 4 of quarantine and you've got all the ingredients for a wildly unpredictable, hilariously messy episode of Game That Tune!

The Sealed City

A disclaimer: This episode won’t be for everyone. It’s been an odd few weeks, and for some reason I’ve been finding comfort in sad stuff rather than just trying to flood my brain with relentlessly happy things. As a result of this special mix of factors, the episode you’re getting from me is all about sad music — specifically sad music from 16-bit RPGs. While Singing Mountain is not yet back, when it returns it will be with a slightly different format that in this episode. I hope this is something we can both look forward to.

Special thanks to Sampson, host of VGM101, who accepted my invitation to talk about sad non-RPG music, just for a little variety: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/vgm101/id1473369972
And while we’re at it, the most recent episode of his show actually has a little guest appearance by me: https://prolefeed101.com/vgm-101-episode-29-street-fighting-fighting-street/

Episode 61: Respawned Records, Vectormania, Perfect Dark

It’s been 84 years since we’ve seen you, but our ❤️ for video game music on vinyl records has gone on, and so we’re back at it! This time, Paul and Jeremy are joined by Justin O’Rear from Respawned Records to discuss a pair of features for this episode that are dubiously thematically tied together for your enjoyment and edification. Our first feature pick this time around is Vectormania by Respawned Records. We grapple with the graphics and opine aout “orbots” in this 1990s blast from the pre-rendered past on the Sega Genesis Megadrive. Justin gives us some insight into the background of the record and we even do a little comparison of the electro-farty soundfont on the original hardware. Next, Jeremy infiltrates Perfect Dark, by iam8bit, and puts the game in the context of its iconic spiritual predecessor while highlighting the style it keeps all for itself. We appreciate Joanna Dark as a cool character and explore the musical unity of this co-composed soundtrack while reliving our comp-stomping glory days of Perfect Dark multiplayer.

Next we have quite a few items to catch you up on, commercially speaking. Times are tough but if you’re like us, the call of the vinyl is strong, and we know you want to answer. In our third and final segment we sit down with Justin to learn everything there is to know about his new (but prolific) record label, and some of the… “cult pop” properties he has pursued. We ask the hard questions about Plok, and we even weasel a brand new announcement out of him for the next Respawned release!

KVGM "The Last Wave" (4/12/20)

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 is a pretty emotional episode - very serious at times but with an underlying lightheartedness. In fact, if you listen closely, you can hear a wild turkey in the background. Yes, that's right, we've got a ton of wild turkeys on Aqua City Island. Running around, being crazy turkeys. But stay safe out there, stay indoors but also remember it's not a prison. Talk walks, enjoy nature...as long as there isn't a bunch of other people enjoying nature in the same spot. And, of course, enjoy the jams!

STAGE 68: Games of 2019

Better late than never!

This past 2019 was surprisingly strong for the world of gaming, offering up an incredibly varied mix of interactive experiences to all who played.

This past year had a great variety of games, be it from triple-A titles like Death Stranding to Link’s Awakening to indie successes like Disco Elysium, whatever your game of choice might be, all were there to inspire, comfort, and more importantly: entertain. This past year was a defining showcase of the industry’s most talented individuals and how their creations made for some entertaining choices of digital escapism, be in on the go, or at the comfort of your own home.

So as a returning favorite for the retro VGM revival hour, We will be playing some selected tracks from the various games of 2019.

Now unlike the previous STAGES, this years selection will be limited to 3 tracks per game as a way to hopefully include more game titles than the previous episodes covering this said subject.

Now with that out of the way…. let’s get started!

Episode 52: PICO-8 with The Diad

Podcast VGM pico-8 the vgmbassy video game music

The PICO-8 is a fantasy console featuring a huge library of free games and a robust demoscene. It can be played on a wide variety of devices, and has built-in game development tools. So, just what the heck is a “fantasy console?” Think of it like an emulator for a system that never existed – developers create fully-featured games using a specific set of hardware limitations, and offer their products to the world at no charge. Many of these games have short but very pleasing soundtracks reminiscent of the Sega Master System or ZX Spectrum.

Joining Ed to discuss this little marvel and its music is The Diad! They’ve picked some of their favorite titles with impressive soundtracks, and you can play along as you listen! The links in the tracklist on our website will take you directly to each game, playable in your web browser. We hope you enjoy this introduction to an amazing little piece of tech!

Gareth Coker Scores Ori's Next Adventure In 'Will Of The Wisps'

Ori and the Will of the Wisps by Moon Studios continues the adventure begun with the beloved Ori and the Blind Forest. Will of the Wisps takes Ori on an emotional journey as he searches for his new friend, Ku. Gareth Coker, who also scored Blind Forest , told me that writing the score for Will of the Wisps gave him plenty of fresh ideas because of all of the new characters in the game. Gareth was part of development of Will of the Wisps since the game's beginning, which gave him plenty of time to finetune themes for each of the new characters. Gareth worked with some outstanding musicians, including Kristin Naigus, who plays 21 different wind instruments on the score, and vocalist Aeralie Brighton, whose voice was so memorable in Ori and the Blind Forest. The digital release of Gareth's soundtrack is over three hours long, and follows the story arc of the game. A vinyl release by IAM8Bit is planned as well, and because LPs hold fewer minutes of music, Gareth describes it as "composer's
