The videogame_mixtape_ is an ongoing audio-based, research-driven project by Larry Achiampong. Created with the purpose of exploring the heritage and evolution of music and audio in gaming, this endeavour opens up Achiampong’s interest in this cultural phenomenon through gestures of play and sharing.
The project is (re)presented in the form of a series of mixtapes that the artist will disseminate online, and on occasions will be complimented by video versions which will include visuals associated with the games. Achiampong will also create playlists for each of the mixtapes, detailing information including game title(s), composer(s) and the gaming platform(s) that the music features on.
The project will also feature podcasts where the artist is joined by invited guests to talk and listen to all things gaming and audio related.
