I like to just be thrown into a huge world and see what happens. Graves also uses his score to help tell, and punctuate, the actual story of the game. Like with Dead Space. You never really know where the downbeat is coming from, lots of dissonance. No strong melody or harmony. If I can understand the whole story I can start to craft themes that are appropriate in certain places.
I check my work against the sound design, the effects, the explosions, the gunfire — I check it. That was the opposite, I got videos of gameplay and there was hardly any time to discuss anything. You go for safer choices to make that deadline.

The earlier the better. The trend to bring composers onboard as early as possible reflects the general goodwill toward to the role that has come to fruition in the last few years. But with game soundtracks reaching unprecedented heights of budgetary resources and attention, where next for the future of this profession?
Kyd agrees with the idea of a future landscape divided against itself: One is the indie and social scene, where you have composers pushing the limit of what interactive music can be. The other side is huge triple-A titles where you go out and record with orchestras. I seeing it splitting off and going in those two, extreme directions.

The Orchestral Revolution explores the changing listening culture of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Delving into Enlightenment philosophy, the nature of instruments, compositional practices and reception history, this book describes the birth of a new form of attention to sority and uncovers the intimate relationship between the development of modern musical aesthetics and the emergence of orchestration. By focusing upon Joseph Haydn's invative strategies of orchestration and tracing their reception and influence, Emily Dolan shows that the consolidation of the modern orchestra radically altered how people listened to and thought about the expressive capacity of instruments.
The orchestra transformed from a mere gathering of instruments into an ideal community full of diverse, nuanced and expressive characters.
In addressing this key moment in the history of music, Dolan demonstrates the importance of the materiality of sound in the formation of the modern musical artwork. Culture, Context, and Criticism [Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, ].

Haydn and the Technologies of Timbre is one of the latest additions to the groaning shelves of Haydn scholarship. Overall, it is a welcome one. There is much to admire in the book, though it is not without shortcomings, as I note below. Its thesis is as yet relatively unplowed ground in Haydn scholarship which is certainly saying something —unplowed ground because it counters prevailing notions of Haydn and his music.
In a forceful and compelling introduction, Dolan charges that scholarship on Haydn has for too long been removed from the materiality of music as sounds produced by humans playing instruments—that is, writers have tended to regard his music as intellectually satisfying aesthetic forms that can be fully appreciated even divorced from the processes that produce sound. The conventional view implies that Haydn cannot be perceived as being overly concerned with surface effect—as, say, Rossini might be accused of—but rather with underlying structure and form.
