Video Game Music Bands and Artists List

Video Game Music Bands and Artists List

Video game music is the soundtrack that accompanies video games. Early video game music was once limited to simple sounds of early programmable sound generator (PSG) chips. These limitations have led to the style of music known as chiptune, and became the most popular sound of the first video games.

With advances in technology, video game music has grown to include elements and sounds from other musical styles. While chiptune compositions are still common, game music now includes full orchestral pieces and popular music (having originated during the height of the disco era, styles from which atavistic sounds can be compared). Music in video games can be heard over a game's title screen, menus, as well as during gameplay. Game soundtracks can also change depending on a player's actions or situation, such as indicating missed actions in rhythm games, informing the player they are in a dangerous situation or rewarding them for certain achievements

Video game music can be one of two kinds: original or licensed. In order to create or collect this music, teams of composers, music directors, and music supervisors must work with the game developers and game publishers. The popularity of video game music has created education and job opportunities, generated awards, and led to video game soundtracks to be commercially sold and performed in concerts.
