When you work in an industry it’s easy to forget that not everyone is as knowledgeable as you are about your particular niche. Being a video game composer is no different.
I’ll never forget when I was at a conference introducing myself to someone as a game music composer, and that person actually said ‘I didn’t think games had music in them’. I was shocked!
After a few minutes of me talking and explaining what game music was, they eventually agreed with a kind of ‘… yeah, I suppose so’ response.
