Ep. 16: Talking video game music: interview with Dr Tim Summers

Read more
In this episode, we're exploring the wonderful world of video game music with Dr Tim Summers, Lecturer in Music at Royal Holloway, University of London. Tim specialises in the academic study of video game music and ludomusicology, the study of music via games and play. In this interview, we discussed many different facets of video game music including:

- the role of music in game design and production.
- the mechanics of gaming for the player but also the idea of the player as a listener.
- the challenges of categorising game music as high art versus low art, terms that are problematic in themselves.
- the influence of classical music and opera on video games.
- how one analyses video game music from, for instance, the perspective of a gamer, a music analyst, and a ludomusicologist.
- the influence of video games on musical interfaces.

Listen to BBC Radio 3's Afternoon Concert of video game music (available for a limited time on iPlayer) - https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0006fkj.
