Dan Golding knows a lot about the craft of making music for video games, such as his work on Untitled Goose Game and how we identify personally as players of games.
Dr Dan Golding is a video game composer who has created soundtracks for the smash hit Untitled Goose Game, The Haunted Island: A Frog Detective Game and Push Me Pull You and has studied our relationships with video games.
He joins us to speak about his research, the book he wrote with Leena Van Deventer Game Changers: From Minecraft to Misogny, creating the dynamic soundtrack of Untitled Goose Game was created and how people who play video games self identify online.
