Welcome to Eine kleine Pwnmusik.
This blog is about video games, music, and my frolicking between the two. I'm an Australian gamer and I'm studying a PhD in ludomusicology (the study of video game music). This basically means that in a couple of years I'll have written around 80,000 stiff-yet-precise academic words about music, and that I'll have spent many, many hours of playing games to get there. It's a tough life.
My thesis will (probably) focus on the role music plays in helping players understand the gameplay space. This blog will focus on very little and should be a lot more fun to write. All the visceral and emotional and ridiculous things that don't translate well into academese will go here, along with my general thoughts about the non-musical stuff of games.
I'll start posting after Christmas, with the first few posts being about my recent experiences on Halo 4, L.A. Noire and whatever I play with the family over Christmas.
