Emily Reese interviews people in the video game industry, including composers, audio directors, sound designers and developers.
Level Bit 21: Inon Zur (Syberia: The World Before)
Here are two tracks from Inon Zur's upcoming score to Syberia: The World Before. The music is performed by the Budapest Film Orchestra and I can't wait to hear the rest of the soundtrack! You can support Level with Emily on Patreon.
Level 142: Steve Pardo (Signs of the Sojourner)
Signs of the Sojourner is a narrative deck-building card game about communication. This is easily one of my favorite soundtracks of 2020 and one I know I’ll return to for years to come. It was a suuuuuuuch a pleasure to talk with Steve about his music!! You can support Level with Emily Reese on Patreon.
Level 141: Tim Wright/CoLD SToRAGE (Pacer, Wipeout)
Tim Wright -- aka CoLD SToRAGE -- composed music for the game Pacer, which is an anti-gravity racing game with elements of combat. It’s a spiritual successor to the Wipeout series which started in the mid-90s, and Tim wrote the music for 3 of the Wipeout games. It was a pleasure to speak with Tim! He has an extensive catalog available on Bandcamp that includes his Wipeout music, be sure to check it out. You can support Level with Emily on Patreon.
Level 140: Jesse Harlin (Mafia: Definitive Edition)
Hear composer Jesse Harlin talk about his music for Mafia: Definitive Edition. The game is a remake of the first Mafia game, which came out in 2002, but with completely new music written by Jesse. We’ve had Jesse on the show twice before; once was for Yoku’s Island Express in 2018 and in 2016, Jesse was on Level to talk about his work on Mafia 3. That was mostly a blues score, but the score for Mafia: Definitive Edition is entirely orchestral. Support Level with Emily Reese and see a playlist on Patreon.
Level 139: Max LL (Spiritfarer)
I love the Spiritfarer soundtrack. It was a pleasure to talk with Max LL about his music for Spiritfarer. We also talk about Jøtun and Sundered. All three are made by Thunder Lotus Games in Montreal in Quebec in Canada. It's worth repeating: I love this soundtrack. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Level 138: Stephen Sharer (Rocket Slide)
I spoke with YouTuber Stephen Sharer about his new app called Rocket Slide. Stephen's channel is full of family-friendly content, positivity and vibrant colors. It was a pleasure to speak with him about all the videos he makes. Support Level with Emily on Patreon!
