One Life Left — s17e12 — #365 — Stars In Their Pies


No shoes chat this week for those of you tuning in, but we managed to get some paneer chat for those of you interested in a vegetarian Christmas. Ann also kept us up to date with the current leaders in the mince pie ratings and gave good Christmas music advice.

However, maybe we should have asked this week’s Super-Special Guest – Tim Summers – instead. He’s a musicologist who specialises in videogames and lectures at Royal Holloway, University of London. He told us about what videogames can teach us about music, which games do good generative music, and how videogame music will change in the future. He will also be helping us with our new game genre that we came up with in this episode.

We also worked out if Ste is the same as Rockstar, found out what game Tim played with his Dad, and Ann made two very good jokes.

Cheerio!
