It’s June, which means it’s time for The Masters of VGM, a community event among participating podcasts in which they get to talk about their chosen composers based on a theme. They may condense it into a one episode or spread it out across several episodes, all within the month of June.
This year, the theme for MoVGM is underappreciated or up-and-coming composers. It can be composers that are rarely discussed at length or perhaps overshadowed by more famous ones. It can also be about composers that have recently started out and are being noticed because of a title or their recent work.
This week’s episode will look at a composer for the recently popular MMORPG “Genshin Impact”: Yu-Peng Chen. He actually started with television and movies before producing soundtracks for video game. Also, Genshin Impact was not the only game he’s produced; that honor goes to Moonlight Blade, a mobile game that was only available in China.
If you’re a fan of Yu-Peng Chen or a player of Genshin Impact, I hope you’ll enjoy. If you’re curious about Genshin Impact, I hope these tracks will pique your curiosity.
