The shininess reminds me of Selected Sound sleeves and the sound is similar to this killer library (would love to get my hands on this one but hard to score)
Totally agreed about those parallels although I never really thought about it explicitly. Gonna check through the links. Some computer game music probably IS library music in fact, the big ones still exist in one form or another though I don't know many people who are particularly interested in their current output. Possible in about twenty years it will acquire that hipster value with a thin veneer of desirability added by time.I'm a fan. For me there's similarities with Library Music & Video Game Music, they both run alongside the traditional music industry, imitating, reflecting and at times predicting it's future, all with this weird mix commerce and creativity.
