Rhythm Encounter 28 – Quack Pack: An Interview with HyperDuck SoundWorks

We’re back, and we’re quoting early 2000s Disney shows! What better way to introduce our chatter with Irish superduo HyperDuck SoundWorks, Chris Geehan and Dan Byrne-McCullough! Listen as part-time blanket fiber specialist/RPGFan Music editor Michael Sollosi and I quack it up with the maestros behind Dust: An Elysian TailPenny Arcade 4, and the upcoming Cosmic Star Heroine!

Following in the hallowed footsteps of other awesome shows about ducks, Rhythm Encounter brings you its first interview podcast of 2015 with a discussion featuring the talented Irish composer duo HyperDuck SoundWorks. Chris Geehan and Dan Byrne-McCullough talk about their beginnings, their inspirations, the soundscape of the 1980s, and the best song in Mega Man X with Stephen and Mike 2. The HyperDuck fellows also break down their work on Dust: An Elysian Tail and Penny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 4, and preview some music from the upcoming Cosmic Star Heroine.

Note: We had to re-number our episodes several years after publishing. This was originally Episode 22, as reflected in the audio. Don’t worry, you’re not missing anything!

Stephen used to hang out here, but at some point he was either slain by Rob or disappeared after six hundred straight hours of chanting "I'm really feeling it!" while playing Smash Ultimate. (But seriously, Stephen ran RPGFan Music for a portion of his six years here, and launched our music podcast, Rhythm Encounter.)
