This online course introduces you to video game music and the platforms that define it, focusing on the evolution of the classic 8-bit sound.

The course features exclusive interviews with video game musicians, plus recorded examples, downloadable demos and sample code, so you can get hands on.

By the end, you’ll listen to those bleeps and bloops with a newfound respect.
