This week’s episode became more that I had bargained for…
I was originally going to talk about one composer’s birthday but then I realized “What if there are other composers born in September?” After sending a question out through social media and Discord, I found out there were several more composers born this month. So I decided to extend this episode to include their birthdays as well.
Well, I underestimated how much material and information I needed, because there are a total of six composers who were born in September (as far as I was informed).
We’re going to hear tracks from one of their video games, along with their covers and remixes, most of which did their own. It’s jammed-packed with music, so have a seat while I serve up a slice of cake and some sober drinks!
