We’ve got a fun episode for you guys today. It’s also a fitting follow-up to our previous episode, so … cheers to proper progression!

Brenna and I grill young-and-aspiring composer / violinist / audio engineer Jeff Ball on all topics related to Jeff Ball’s life. Okay, not all of them. But many of them. As Brenna is herself (re)learning violin, we get into the nitty-gritty of violin technique. We also talk about Ball’s work on the Globulous soundtrack, his performances in collaboration with Sam Hulick on Red Orchestra 2 and Mass Effect 3, his take on how to forge an identity (without getting pegged and typecast as, for example, “the violin guy”), and of course, we get the full backstory on how Ball even got started in the biz. Hint: GDC is a special, special place.
