Behind the Scenes – Game Music Lullabies

cover Behind the Scenes   Game Music Lullabies

Project Director Jayson Napolitano joined us for a one of a kind behind the scenes look into the creation of this music SERIES. Jayson reveals most of the lineup in what we found out would be the next installment possibly dedicated to Secret of Mana…..

We journey through Jayson’s personal vision of putting this project together, over decade in the works, and how he ended up signing Norihiko Hibino and AYAKI to perform.  We also discuss how they actually created each song, what went into the track order, and how Mustin had a say in the process.

The future of physical media was discussed as Jayson & Will explained to the audience what cassette tape is!

New Contract signed for AMF & Microsoft

The Saga continues.

Apparently one day after Austin Wintory took to the interwebs with a rant about how his union (the American Federation of Musicians) was fining him $50,000 for collaborating with non-union musicians to complete The Banner Saga soundtrack, the union signs a 2 year deal with Microsoft to allow musicians to be compensated.

The Deal
$300 per musician for a 3 hour session. This deal is valid with Microsoft until October 2016 which allows use of the recording in the game and subsequent sequels.

Austin Wintory’s Response
Austin took time to respond on his twitter account to the news stating “There are DEFINITE problems with this contract but if even ONE session emerges from it’s a substantial step up from the last 2 years.”

We can only imagine. One session being used in a game and it’s sequels for one time fee. What about things like soundtrack rights? Other entertainment industries have compensation fees based on the performance of the title.

These issues have yet to be addressed, since we don’t have full details on the contract just yet Austin continues on a larger issue with the culture of AFM, “Note that this still does not solve the problem of a threat and intimidation-based culture within the union."

We will be sure to keep you updated on this story as it develops.
