At the Wavelengths of Madness
Chris Christodoulou took his first piano lessons at a young age and gradually focused on composition. He has performed with various bands in a wide range of genres.
In 2009 he was accepted in the Composing for Film master’s at the Conservatory of Amsterdam. While there he wrote his first game scores (The Sea Will Claim Everything, Risk of Rain).
He now resides in Athens, Greece, composing for games, animation, audio dramas and films.
In his free time Chris likes to consume dead trees.
What exactly is the composer’s place within the gaming industry?
In a recent post by Mick Gordon, we got the composer’s POV on the events that led to the “DOOM Eternal” soundtrack controversy. His post shed light on questionable industry practices, often the result of ignorance rather than greed or malice.
I aim to discuss these practices and the complex relationship between composers and the industry at large (including studios, press and audience) and explore ways to understand and optimize it.
