Melodic Treks: A Star Trek Music Podcast

Star Trek: Dark Remnant with Matthew Carl Earl. 
 
Star Trek: Dark Remnant puts you in control of the U.S.S. Galileo, Starfleet’s latest and most advanced stellar research vessel, accompanying the U.S.S. Enterprise on a routine mission to evacuate a stellar observatory located in the middle of the Klingon Neutral Zone and learn more about the decaying neutron star it orbits. When the neutron star collapses prematurely it leaves the Enterprise incapacitated. It’s now up to YOU to protect her from stellar debris – and the unwelcome arrival of a Klingon ship out for vengeance.


With several completely different endings combined with other elements of variability, including subtle differences in gameplay, randomized player characters, and dialogue that responds real-time to your performance, Star Trek: Dark Remnant is never the same experience twice. You might even observe the fate of a poor redshirt ensign!


In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Matthew Carl Earl, composer for Star Trek: Dark Remnant to discuss the new VR experience. We also discuss working in the video game world, Giacchino's inspiring music, the sound design, and some of Matthew's other composing works.

"Desert Crossing" With Jim Moorhouse. 
  
Once a podcaster has chosen a format for their show, one eseential element that is vital to help set the tone of their show is the main theme. Some shows will have a new theme created and others will choose apiece of Royalty free music. However, every once in a while, there exists a song that perfectly encapsulates exactly what the host  is looking for.


In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Jim Moorhouse of the Trek Ranks podcast to discuss the score to the episode "Desert Crossing" from the first season of Enterprise.
