Travel through magic lands on GamePlay, August 2021


The month begins in the frozen world of Skyrim, then we’ll look for the secrets held by an island in the Scottish Hebrides, go on a walk through the beautiful but mysteriously empty English countryside, and experience the life cycle of a planet.  Travel with us through the magical worlds and musical scores of video games. Saturdays at 11am and 7pm.

8/7       Skyrim This week we explore beloved music from one of the most successful fantasy role-playing games of all time: The Elder Scrolls V: SKYRIM! Millions of gamers have gotten pleasantly lost in this rich wintry world since 2011, with its deep story and detailed history, politics, and mythology that are easily comparable to Game of Thrones or the Lord of the Rings.

8/14      Atmospheres  Game music that sets a mood. Though plenty of videogames are about pulse-pounding action thrills, there are also lots of games that are more atmospheric, reflective, even meditative, and music plays a major part in creating the atmosphere for your experience.

8/21      God of War  This week we’ll dive deep into the BAFTA-award winning soundtrack for 2018’s God of War!

8/28      Jessica Curry   This week we’ll explore three different soundtracks scored by composer Jessica Curry: one of today’s great game music storytellers. No matter the setting or story of a particular game, she is able to adapt her style while maintaining her unique, gorgeously lyrical voice.
