so CyberPunk 2077 tries to grab you attention with pop icons such as Keunu Reeves being a musician in the game, but are video games proper medium for pop-music intergration? I mean you know rock and pop music dead in the english side of the world but …
could it revive itself in the video game world?
With all the assorted genres available? I mean couldnt it make its’ own genre of post digital society existence?
I know Refused members lead man had helped with Keunu’s role, but its really just scrapped the edges of what it could be right? I haven’t gotten that far into the game myself, but i saw the BTS video and it was raw. It didn’t really advertise a new genre. but I could see a new genre developing.
The orchestral aspect in games lays a heavy impact on the vibe and atmosphere, but how about a new pop-genre of music? Does any one think that there might be some kind of new beginning?
I mean could there be a new society willing to break into this medium? To make itself heard?
There is this game where this band wrote this archiac witch type music. I can’t remember the name of the game, but it was dark and viking/celtic oriented. It was dark and not your typical music. Kind of disturbing really. but you get the idea that creatives are making genres of music specific to a games atmosphere. It is really engaging~ ! but ultimately, would a fictitious genre reach out to general public appeal through a video game?
I mean if its individualized, hiting the right chords both emotional, lyrical, and melodic, would society accept it as a fantastical and escapist form of music? even if their own society wouldn’t agree/forbid/ outcast it?
IMHO, i think it could. If there were outstanding, hopeful things to dream about.
