Hello dear readers,
after a long time considering to
start this blog, it took me even longer to create this first entry. As
the headline suggests, I'm planning to share some of my personal
thoughts on video games, music and video game music. I'm not a
journalist, not a game designer either. Yet I sometimes feel the need to
share some of my personal philosophies about video games with others.
And that's, what this blog is for.
I will by no means
try, to deliver well founded, researched articles, but I don't want to
write the absolute bullshit, so it might be, that some entries are more,
some less scientifically informed. I would love to raise some questions
to gamers as well as developers who come across this blog. Feel free to
comment but please don't flame, k?
Hannes. At the moment I am a student of philosophy and musicology, but
that might change sooner or later. Among other things, I love playing
video games. Good games, at least. I am a person who never is content
with getting something interesting, but I always want to know why. E.g. I
hear an interesting piece of music and I ask myself: "This sounds
great, how did the composer achieve this effect?" Then I look for the
sheet music to analyse or, if I can't find any, I will try to recreate
the effect on the piano until I have found it.
More recently I got interested in design, with speacial emphasis on game design. I am, as statet, not a game designer, but I can't play games anymore and just
enjoy them. My critical eyes and ears are always present. Same goes for
watching movies or reading novels etc. That doesn't mean, I can't enjoy
any media anymore, quite the opposite! I started enjoying these things
even more after my analytical enhancement.
hope to be able to share one or the other interesting thought of mine
and if not, I at least have a place to collect them, now!
More to come soon
