Gamespot/Sound Byte’s Best Of 2010

Alan Wake OST was mentioned in Gamespot’s “Best Of 2010“. I value these last two sightings (SEMO and Gamespot) quite high, as I personally follow both sites for professional interest, which in turn doubles the warm feeling I’m getting from those articles. Direct quotation from Gamespot.com: “My personal favorites include Alan Wake, Nier, Super Mario Galaxy 2…” There were a few scores mentioned I hadn’t listened to yet, so I’m going to have a slightly longer listening session waiting for me.

Also, I found out there were multiple composers in many cases, under same title. I really would like to know who did what and why, how they shared the duties etc., hopefully the endless resources of googlinterwebs can shed some light on it.

Santa visited this year with nice presents, I’d say.

Square Enix Music Online awarded Alan Wake soundtrack composed by yours truly as “The Best Score – Europe“. Thanks a million for SEMO and its award board, whoever they were!

Also, worth noticing: I found out that Dynamedion got an “Outstanding Music Production – Music Studio” award. Congratulations, Tilman and Pierre! Sumthing Else Music Works got also praised in the game, in “Outstanding Music Production – Record Label” category, well done.
