Summary, etc.:
Berklee Video Game Music Club members Nazer Lagrimas (president), Julia Seeholzer (vice president), and Akash Thakkar (secretary) present an entertaining and enlightening look into the evolution of game music, from old arcade games using cassette tape loops to 8 bit 1 channel audio, through the expansion to 5 channels with the Nintendo Entertainment System, to the full orchestral game music recordings of today. With tons of game play videos and audio examples, they demonstrate the constraints game composers have had to deal with as game engines and systems evolved.
