This week’s cue is the main theme from a visually delightful shooter (or, more accurately, magic-wand-zapper) for iOS and Android. The musical concept was a beat-driven cousin of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, capturing the grumpy supernatural quality of wizardry but adding a frenetic pace appropriate for an action game.
On a side note: I had a great time being interviewed by The Loudmouth Report podcast, and the episode is now online via SoundCloud or iTunes. We discussed film and game music, notation software, and the merits (or lack thereof) of various Star Wars films. Check it out!
