Red Bull’s New Series Explores History of Video Game Music
By Lauren Arevalo-Downes
It’s no secret that some of Japan’s greatest and most influential musical exports came in the form of video game music. Its influence, both direct and indirect, can be seen in a lot of electronic-based music today. In its newest web series, Red Bull talks to some of today’s biggest acts and major players in Japan’s video game music history to bring together a story yet untold.
The documentary series is going to be on Red Bull Music Academy’s YouTube channel and continues in the same vein of content that the channel was previously producing, juxtaposing the old and the new. You can watch the series trailer below for a heady dose of nostalgia and also get a bit giddy to see who they’ve snagged to talk about their video game music faves.
