Though this video from GDC 2015 is hardly new, if you're interested in the music behind your favorite games — Diablo or otherwise — it's an astonishing look at the music-making process.
We’re going to jump into the Queue today. I’ve gotten to wax philosophical about music, in light of recent events, and it was fun.
Many in the Blizzard community were pretty surprised to learn that Russel Brower, the man responsible for many of Blizzard's iconic musical scores, had been let go after 12 years with the company.
If you're a fan of Blizzard's music (and I don't know how it's possible to play their games and not be a fan) then this is some pretty sad news.
First it was a nomination by the International Film Music Critics association, and now it's the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers Composers' Choice awards, with Warlords of Draenor securing another big nomination for video game score.
I honestly thought that Warlords of Draenor had one of the best soundtracks in the history of World of Warcraft, and now I have more confirmation: Neal Acree, who composed music for the soundtrack (as well as Diablo, Starcraft and Stargate SG-1 to name a few) tweeted that it was up for a International Film Music Critics Association award.
