REQUIEM FOR THE FINAL BOSS: ANTHOLOGY OF MUSIC IN VIDEO GAMES

Edgar S. Fuentes



 

Requiem for the final boss is a journey through 40 years of musical expression in video games, the total art that reigns in the 21st century. The book brings together the most important departments, composers, albums and materials related to the soundtracks that have marked the sector, contents of those works that have dazzled by their sound section. All this narrated through an academic vision that tries to analyze and extract juice from the discipline, focused in an entertaining and simple way from musicology while giving an informative treatment to the creators behind it.


Music is a fundamental ingredient of the gaming experience and in turn coexists outside the audiovisual plane for which it was born. Its influence is unleashed from the prologue to the apotheosis in which —as usual— the hero faces the archenemy accompanied by a piece, a requiem that acts as a climax before the composition of the credits. Requiem for the Final Boss is essentially a piece of contemporary music history .
