Friday Video Game Music Round-up

It was relatively quiet this week… but I have a feeling things will be heating up with E3 on the way.  Here’s what happened this past week in the world of video game music and audio!

  • An article on The University of Maryland’s 123-piece volunteer video game orchestra.
  • Vote on IGN for your favorite video game theme song!  The winner will be included on the next London Philharmonic Orchestra game music album.
  • Guardian UK blogger Keith Stuart discusses  the soundtrack to Max Payne 3, provided by the US punk band Health.
  • Time magazine’s write-up on last weekend’s Blip Festival 2012.
  • Just to mention here:  May was the most views I’ve received in a single month since the blog started.  I just wanted to thank everyone who enjoys what’s written here.  I write this blog because it’s great to interact with other people interested in video game music..  The past year+ has been great.  Thanks again, folks!  You’re the reason why I keep this going!  😀

Have a good weekend, folks!
