More music

So you are probably wondering why I post so much music here. Isn't this blog supposed to be about game design? Well design concepts overlap and I find that since most other forms or art or media have been around for a longer period of time they have had time to explore ideas more throughly. But classical music in particular is very dense and is very well constructed. I urge any game designer to study classical composition from Bach to Stravinsky.

The reason why classical music is so amazing is that everything is placed with absolute precision. There are pieces that "work" and there are masterpieces. Games are the same way there are games that work and there are games that work better. Compared to classical music there are no games that are masterpieces. Portal comes close and maybe a few other games.

Anyway here is a great orchestral work for you to get inspired.
