Kickstarter for Beep: A Documentary History of Video Game Sound

I'm in the midst of getting things organized for the semester.  Really excited to make Video Game Music an even more awesome class this semester.  Have been studying, reading, and playing some games in preparation...  more on that soon.  

Yesterday, I got an email from my friend Karen Collins.  I'd consider her to be the academic expert in the western world on game audio.  Every time I hear her speak, she's thought provoking.  She's amazing!  Anyhow, Karen's recently launched a kickstarter campaign to help fund a documentary she's making on game audio.  The timing of this documentary is perfect: many of the groundbreakers in game audio are still alive and ready to tell their tales.  Plus, game audio is more popular than ever and it's a great time to get even more ears focused on it and its rich history.   




If you love game audio and video game music, help suppert Beep: A Documentary of Video Game Sound.  Like it, share it, help fund it-- if you're able.  Click to see more about the game audio gurus she's already got committed to the project!  It'll be awesome to nerd out to and also an important history.  The ability to hear the sounds as they're being discussed in the video will be a big boon over reading about it in text.  It'll be a great teaching tool if you're into teaching game audio like me!  It'll be a chance to learn if you're looking for a place to start.
