Podcast Episode 4: Women in Game Music

Episode 4: Women in Game Music features Emily, K.T., and Bonnie Bogovich, our first guest speaker!

Bonnie Bogovich is the audio lead at Schell Games, where she works creating and implementing a variety of soundscapes and musical experiences for entertainment-based and educational products, video games, interactive experiences, and theme park attractions. She is also the co-founder and artistic director of “Evenings in Quarantine: The Zombie Opera” and the Music Director of “Super Smash Opera.”

Bonnie works very actively in the game audio community and we are thrilled to have her speak with us in this podcast episode. We discuss what makes this topic so important to talk about, the differences in Eastern and Western game music scenes, and explore important game music soundtracks composed by women. One of her recently projects discussed in the podcast episode is her arrangement of “Waltz de Chocobo” from Final Fantasy VII, as featured on the Materia Collective’s debut album, MATERIA.

About the Author

I currently work as a composer and sound designer for indie games in the Boston area, having just graduated from Berklee College of Music. Video games have been such an important part of my childhood, and I am very excited to take a look into today's soundtracks for you to explore in depth.
