Welcome to our Sound of Play special with Jasper Byrne
For this special Sound of Play podcast we are joined by the multitalented Jasper Byrne (@jasperbyrne).
Jasper tells Leon about his history as a videogames fan, a videogames designer and as a multi-genre music maker.
The conversation is woven around a selection of tracks hand-picked by Jasper, featuring some of his favourites from other artists, some of his own work for games to which he has contributed music (including Hotline Miami), and his own games Lone Survivor.
Our special thanks go to listener – and Jasper’s brother – Nick Byrne (@nickfullspec), for setting this one up.
