Retro noty 35: Bardi Might & Magic Paul Romero & Rob King

Podcasty Retro Nation

Jarda Konáš vás zavede do říše not pánů, kteří mohou za hudbu série Might & Magic – ale nejen to! Otevřete sluchovody, hudba přitéká. Legendární herní značka Might & Magic je neoddělitelně spjata s autorskou dvojicí Rob King a Paul Romero. Ačkoliv nebyli u jejího zrodu, zapojili se až do práce na prvním dílu Heroes of Might & Magic, jejich tvůrčí rukopis vtiskl Might & Magic takové kouzlo, že od té doby pracovali na všech dalších dílech. Přestože jejich skladatelské dílo prakticky zůstalo zakonzervováno ve světě Might & Magic, nebáli se s ním pracovat dál a přenést je mimo obrazovky počítačů. Zároveň jsou oba talentovaní muzikanti, kteří se každý zprvu realizoval v úplně jiné oblasti. Proto se v podcastu podíváme nejen na jejich dílo, ale povíme si i příběh, jak se jejich zprvu absolutně vzdálené cesty náhodou protnuly. A z té náhody nakonec vznikly jedny z nejhezčích melodií v herní historii. Podívejte se na https://www.retronation.cz na další skvělé výlety do herních světů!
