Memoirs of a Gamer:
Working in the game industry I have often been asked what games influenced me; the list has grown quite long over the years but I was able to finally put it all together. Each game had its own unique attribute about it but in general the games with deep stories were my favorite.


Of course every great interest comes from somewhere and for me the first game on the list “Super Metroid” was the one that got me started. I decided to give a special shout out to Samus, so I hired the super talented Robaato from Deviantart to bring her to life on the album cover (Check out his amazing artwork at http://robaato.deviantart.com/ )




About the score: My original intent was to make this a complextro track, however after building the intro I really got into the melodic side of things and decided to try something radically different. The final piece is not based on any game theme per say but rather is a strong nod toward traditional game composition in terms of melody and tonal nature.
