At the Vegas Music conference electronic music artist and the composer of Monster movie score, BT, spoke to a crowd of young musicians and DJs about the music industry. One of the tips he gave out was that video game composers have the “best life for a composer”, while TV composers have it rough. “I’m just one man, but I know many TV composers and none of them are happy with their job.” Some of BT’s work has been featured in games. Somnambulist made it into DDR Extreme and Frequency added in Smartbomb. He’s even scored some video games such as Tiger Woods 2005. BT mentioned how the budgets for games have been going up into the millions and that they are going to need more video game composers in the near future.
