Review:

"Behind every great game experience is an interactive score that defines the emotional through-line of a game. Writing Interactive Music for Video Games will show you how to create such a score, from basic concepts to sophisticated techniques. It is filled with advice from some of the greatest video game composers working today, and written with the clarity and insight that comes from experience." -Tracy Fullerton, Director, USC Game Innovation Lab "Michael Sweet's book provides a much-needed text that walks a composer through all of the critical considerations when first starting to work in the video game industry. Not simply a 'how-to' but a 'why-to' that dives deep into the aesthetics and best practices of writing an interactive score. Through his years of work in the industry and years of teaching, he is able to bring together a comprehensive discussion on composing interactive scores. Professor Sweet brings together the nuts and bolts, the business, and pertinent historical moments-all while setting composers' expectations for working in the industry. There is no better book to be found if you are a composer looking to understand writing for games." -Jeanine Cowen, Vice President for Curriculum and Program Innovation, Academic Affairs, Berklee College of Music "Michael Sweet demonstrates a formidable depth and breadth of knowledge related to adaptive music. He adroitly covers both the creative and technical components critical to being successful in this field. This book is a must-read for newcomers and experienced composers wanting to learn more about the art of video game composition." -Chuck Doud, Director of Music, Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios "Clear, complete, concise, and filled with vital information. This is a must-read for any composer serious about scoring for games. If you want to know what makes game music unique, look no further; this book will take you to the next level!" -Steve Horowitz, Composer "The processes and techniques for composing for games has typically been a black art of strange terms and byzantine processes. Writing Interactive Music for Video Games uncovers the issues you have to deal with when composing music for games and presents them in an easy-to-understand way, from the creative and technical issues to making bids and dealing with contracts. An excellent resource for both the professional and aspiring composer, this book should be on the shelf of anyone interested in writing music for games." -Brian Schmidt, Executive Director, GameSoundCon, and President, Game Audio Network Guild "Michael Sweet has written a thorough and comprehensive guide for any composer or audio professional wishing to understand the technical and creative aspects of scoring video games. Students and professionals at all levels will find this book valuable and well worth reading." -Garry Schyman, Composer, Bioshock series, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Dante's Inferno, and Xcom: The Bureau Declassified; and Adjunct Professor, USC's SMPTV Program
