Gonintendo just got out of Koji Kondo’s Keynote on game composition and music. They have the entire summary of the keynote on their site, but I’ll provide a brief summary of what all Mr. Kondo talked about. He spoke about how gameplay can affect how the music is portrayed in the game. He gave many examples of this from past Mario games including New Super Mario Bros. for DS.

It’s a good read and gives some into the mind of the musical genius that is Koji Kondo.

Also of note—Later tonight, EA is holding a press event to share their ideas on Wii! Check back later for more details!
