Here is the extended cut for Episode 2, which is on “Casino Calavera” by Peter McConnell from Double Fine’s (slash LucasArts) 1997 release, “Grim Fandango.” Enjoy a deep dive into some serious VGM repertoire!
This final edition of Episode 1, I’m interviewing Andrew Schartmann, who I’ve mentioned at length in this podcast series because his two books (“Maestro Mario” and “33 1/3: Super Mario Bros. Soundtrack”) were the basis for a lot of my research. He’s a Ph.D candidate at Yale whose work focuses on form and design in early console video games. This is a really insightful conversation, so please check it out!
This edition of Episode 1, I’m streaming “Super Mario Bros.” with a particular focus on the music design within each level, then with each world on the whole. Come check it out!
“Into the Score” is a show about studying video game music – what it is, how it works, and why the pieces we study are an important part of the VGM literature. In this extended edition of the premiere episode, we study Koji Kondo’s “Overworld” theme from Nintendo’s 1985 release for the NES, Super Mario Bros.
A huge thanks to Andrew Schartmann and his two books, “33 1/3: Koji Kondo’s Super Mario Bros. Soundtrack” and “Maestro Mario,” which were incredible resources for study.
