I’m Vincent Diamante, composer of the PS4 Flower Game & audio director of thatgamecompany. AMA.
Hi Reddit! This is Vincent Diamante, and I’m the audio director and video game music composer for the studio thatgamecompany (who are best known for making Flower, Journey, flOw). I composed the soundtrack to Flower for the PlayStation 3 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJam5Auwj1E), and it was recently remastered and released for the PlayStation 4. In celebration of the 5 Year Anniversary of Flower’s launch, the original soundtrack is being released today as a limited edition CD & also on iTunes. I’ve also worked on a variety of other things outside of thatgamecompany, such as Lab Zero Games’ Skullgirls and random things from Konami’s early forays into web and phone gaming. I’m currently composing the soundtrack for the upcoming thatgamecompany title and I also teach at University of Southern California’s Interactive Media and Games division as well.
We’re big fans of Reddit here so I’m excited to chat more about composing Flower’s soundtrack, music and video games design, cool music tools, breaking into games, and anything else. So ask me anything!
