Wow, did this ever turn into a mammoth project.
For episode 12, we reached out and interviewed *almost* every artist who appeared on the Indie Game Music Bundle 2. You know, that big awesome one that netted you a bunch of great music? Yeah. We decided to keep interest in the movement alive by talking to all of these guys about their current projects. Interesting note: with the exception of Africa (and technically Antarctica), these interviews have us reaching to every continent on earth. Countries represented include Chile, Canada, Sweden, Russia, Japan, New Zealand, and (of course) the USA. Of course, most of them are probably at GDC right now.
First, though, I have some apologies to make:
1) We wanted to have a special segment with Jake Kaufman in this episode. Due to scheduling, and the fact that this episode is already absurdly long, we’ve decided instead to make that its own episode. So, no Jake interview here, but it will happen, and Jayson will be a part of it.
2) I (Patrick) talk waaaay too much. The saddest thing of all is that this 3+ hour episode would have been nearly 4 hours if I hadn’t made edits to my own rambling. But even with the edits, you’ll notice. And for that, I apologize.
3) During the interview with Module, you will occasionally hear my voice echoing. It’s a feedback loop problem; partially my fault, and partially the fault of our international Skype call.
Right-click and “Save As…” to download the episode. Below the link, you’ll find show notes. We didn’t name every individual song used throughout this super-duper megasode; just know that when you hear music below the talking, it’s either by the artist being interviewed or is being referenced by that artist, and music after each interview is always by the artist being interviewed.
