ETAO Podcast, Episode 51.
C. Andrew Rohrmann (also known as scntfc, previously known as Scientific American, and alternately known by some pseudonyms that we’re not at liberty to disclose) stops by to talk about reactive soundtracks, “the mutability of music,” his notion of “anonymous ubiquity,” and his work on games like Oxenfree, Afterparty, Old Man’s Journey, ELOH, GALAK-Z, Virtual Virtual Reality, Crackdown 2, and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP—not to mention his work on things-that-are-not-games, from his extensive DJing and his solo electronic albums, to his music for commercials, to his contributions to the ambiance of the Xbox Dashboard.
