Deep inside the hallowed halls of Minnesota Public Radio, Emily Reese is studying game soundtracks. Outside of her full-time position at the radio station, she fights to find the time to host the Top Score podcast. Since April of 2011, Emily Reese has interviewed the composers behind Red Dead Redemption, Halo, Assassin's Creed, and many other triple-A games that you know and love. These aren't light interviews about features in the games. Emily dives deep into the musical theory, stories behind the soundtracks, and plays examples of the composer's work. Alongside her technical director Sam Keenan, Emily Reese crafts a tightly edited show that aims to give the composers behind the world's biggest games the recognition and attention they deserve. Watch the video below to get an inside glimpse at how she creates the show and why she feels so passionate about spreading the word about game music to the larger classical music scene.
