Rhythm Encounter 84 – VGM for Life Events: Wedding Special!

Rhythm Encounter 084 VGM Weddings

It’s spring, and I suppose that means wedding season is beginning soon? In any case, it’s the perfect time to debut a new series of episodes here on Rhythm Encounter: VGM for life events. Especially with the increased capacity for intricate instrumental music within soundtracks, RPGs are able to convey a variety of moods, emotions, and tones throughout your adventures. This gives fans a great opportunity to be thoughtful about how to use VGM in their daily lives and for major life events. As teased above, we’re starting this series with a monumental life milestone–weddings. RPG music has always held a special place for Dr. Justin Lyn, so he and his wife incorporated it throughout their special day. Today, he’s here to discuss and guide us through their process for this lovely life event.

Featuring: Hilary Andreff, Dr. Justin Lyn
