It would take at least 4 other albums to give back what the world of video games has managed to teach me on a musical level and beyond. However, this seems like a good start.
From an early age I was fascinated by the ability of video games to arouse emotions, to put yourself in a completely new world and at the same time, to be able to face important topics. Music was the component I preferred the most, to the point that I played the same levels several times just to listen to a certain song. Even today when I hear some of my favorite soundtracks I realize how great the influence they have on me. All this increase my admiration for the composers and the entire development teams who dedicate body and soul to these small technological jewels.
You can consider this album as a sort of collection, the inspirations have had different sources, but I want to mention at least a few:
Mirror’s Edge, Deus ex Human Revolution, Beyond Good e Evil, Just Cause, Wipeout3, Oddworld, Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, Crash, Shenmue, The Neverhood, Dethkarz, Tomb Raider IV The Last Revelation, Ignition, Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy, Prey… better than I stop here, there would still be too many !!!
Are video games art? Of course they are, they are one of the most complete forms of art that exist.
