New York based composer Spencer Bambrick has released a collection of music from the currently in development indie game BestLuck. The album bio describes BestLuck as, “...a story-driven puzzle game set in a dreamworld. The narrative is beautiful and emotional, with a soundtrack to fit the mood.” The soundtrack we are discussing right now. The bio continues, “The music features a string quartet and solo soprano voice. This chamber ensemble sets the tone, and highlights the heartfelt events that occur in BestLuck.”Read More
Have you ever played the classic Game Gear title Risky Raftin'!? Well you sir are a filthy liar, because the only thing about this game that exists is the kick ass album by Stettes. Funky dance tracks, foreboding arrangements, and even a very nice spacey chiptune jam in Lunar LakeRead More
Thanks to age old cartoons, there is a certain idea we all have about how a cat sneaking about a house might sound. Though that might be a fairly innate feeling, Ninichi nails it in the soundtrack to Shakey's Escape.Read More
Another soundtrack by Spanish composer Paltian. This time it's the adventurous EP length soundtrack to Jet Cat Adventure. The cheery themes definitely evoke the bright colors and cartoonish cats of the indie game itself.Read More
It's not much, but it's a lot. I'll take any Dale North I can get. Ever since my early forays into game music on the internet, I had already been hearing the name Dale North. Four new tracks for the very accurately titled indie game Gunducky.Read More
OG OCR remixer bLiNd drops some original game music of his own with his latest OST for Steam title Klang.
In the premiere episode of ReZonance Review, the Elder Scrolls: Skyrim soundtrack is under the microscope. Rez discusses the atmosphere of the music, as well as how it fares as a stand alone album. What is his verdict for the immense original score to the wildly popular game for PS3 and 360?
Watch the video, and find out.
I wish I could add more about the Skyrim soundtrack myself, but unfortunately that can not be. As a person that is daunted by lengthy games, I have yet to venture into Skyrim, nor any other Elder Scrolls title to date. There is something quite scary these days when a video game tells me I will have hundreds of hours of enjoyment. For a person like myself who prefers to dive into something voraciously, then discard it a week later, sinking months of leisure time into one title is not the way I get my video game fix these days.
What I also don't tend to enjoy these Hollywood, high-production atmospheric scores. They are too reminiscent of forgettable movie scores, and like Rez states in the video, can sometimes lead to easily forgettable music. Admittedly though, I would love to see and hear Dragonborn performed live by a symphony.

ReZ Reviews Skyrim. Music in games can be all over the place, but if one word describes Skyrim, it'd be legendary! Skyrim's the first to go up, so you'll see where i put it on the scoreboard

ReZonance is where you go for video game soundtracks. I've always loved the music in video games, and reviewing them is my way to show my appreciation, and spread my love of gaming music.
