Chris Huelsbeck Reddit AMA

Famed Turrican composer Chris Huelsbeck recently opened an AMA (Ask Me Anything) thread on reddit, allowing fans to freely ask questions. As of this writing, the thread is still live and can be found here. The original thread was first posted here, but later moved due to technical problems.

In the thread, Huelsbeck revealed his favorite composers and influences to be Vangelis, John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, Alan Silvestri, John Powell, and Hans Zimmer among others. When asked about the current state of the video game music industry, Huelsbeck offered praise to titles like Halo, Journey, and Mirror’s Edge. Much more info can be found in the thread, so we at VGMO encourage participation while it is still active.

Chris Huelsbeck is currently running a Kickstarter in funding “The Piano Collection,” a new album containing selected compositions performed by Patrick Nevian. The project has already far exceeded its original aim of $10,000, with stretch goals now in development. Huelsbeck previously ran a Kickstarter in funding the Turrican Soundtrack Anthology, which was covered by VGMO here.

About the Author

I am a university student based in Kobe, Japan majoring in Japanese and English writing. Having dual American-Canadian citizenship, as well a Chinese and Lebanese heritage, world culture and history are big passions of mine. My goal is to become a university educator specializing in Japanese culture and history, as well as hoping to do translation/interpretation on the side. Hobby-wise, I'm a huge cinema buff and enjoy everything from classic to contemporary film. I love playing all kinds of video games as well and having grown up in a musical household, video game soundtracks are a natural extension of that. At VGMO, I primarily cover Japanese and indie soundtracks, but will occasionally conduct interviews with composers. Some of my favorite VGM artists are Koichi Sugiyama, Nobuo Uematsu, Hideki Sakamoto, and Norihiko Hibino to name a few. As for non-VGM artists, I regularly listen to David Bowie, Japan, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Queen, and Chicago. I hope you will enjoy your time on VGMO!
