Top Score with Emily Reese

For centuries, composers have written music for plays. For ballet productions. In the last century, for film scores. And now, more and more composers are writing music for video games. Emily Reese is the writer and host of Top Score, a podcast about video game music. Emily joins host Fred Child today to talk about what's new in music for gamers.
