Painting an Interactive Musical Landscape

Speakers: Koji Kondo

Track: Audio

Format: Lecture

Experience Level: All

Description: If Shigeru Miyamoto is the Steven Spielberg of videogames, Koji Kondo is the John Williams. As one of the industry's most highly regarded composers, Kondo has composed timeless pieces that help bring Nintendo's stories to life through music. Starting with Super Mario Bros. in 1985 to the recently released The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Kondo has continuously redefined the definition of a game soundtrack.

During this in-depth session, Kondo illustrates how his method of composing interactive music is unique by dissecting various examples of sounds and music from the Super Mario and Legend of Zelda series. Although the art and science of videogame music has changed dramatically during the last 20 years, his work has remained consistent and allows Nintendo's musical soundtracks to soar. Learn what inspires Kondo to create musical masterpieces as epic as the tales they accompany.
