Prelude

Aside from music, I also like the Phillies and ice-cream (preferably both at the same time)

Hi, my name is Gregory Weaver and it is my dream to compose music for video games.

Since I love to write and having rediscovered the joys in making my own blog some time ago, I decided to start a new one to catalog my journey to becoming a successful video game music (VGM) composer.  If you join me for the ride, you will be able to read about every step of my creative process, including (but not limited to):

  • Composing.  Through imbedded audio, PDF files, and screenshots you will be able to see and hear the progress that I am making in writing tunes from their birth through either their final mastering or their death at the hands of my better judgment.  Or, best-case scenario, you will see them in games.
  • Exploring VGM.  Before I decided to create this blog I realized that I don’t listen to enough video game music, and the stuff to which I do listen is from the PSX era at best.  I am looking to make up for lost ground, and will review what I study here, citing what I like—and what I don’t like—about soundtracks that I explore.
  • Finding inspiration and developing new ideas.  Whether I am finding inspiration in music outside of video games, in things that I practice, in articles that I read, in nature, etc., I will share my musings and talk about the effects that they’re having on my current musical self.
  • Getting to where I want to be.  How will I shimmy my way into the video game industry?  I’ve heard it tough, but I am confident that I will make it in.  Consider this a guide to what works and what doesn’t work when trying to create a path into this coveted land.

So, is this blog worthwhile?  Am I chasing a crazy, impossible dream?  Maybe.  But only through keeping up with me here will you find out.  Join me as I venture into the unknown and either make… or break.

    Very cool. I’ve thought I don’t listen to enough video game music, but recently I’ve been taking note of particular songs I enjoy in video games. Good luck!
