 Prolific Game Composer Contributes to Historic Documentary Highlighting the History of the Video Game Industry


Video Games Live co-creator Tommy Tallarico will be appearing in the new five part video game industry documentary “Rise of the Video Game” airing on the Discovery Channel in November and December.

Rise of the Video Game is a comprehensive and progressive exploration of the past, present and future of video games and video gamers. From the early days of Pong to today's ever-popular Halo 3, and from Atari 2600 to Nintendo to PlayStation, Rise of the Video Game tells the story of the people, the ideologies and the technology behind video games and how they have exploded into a cultural phenomenon. The evolution of gaming has seen the pendulum move from the days of games replicating society, to society replicating games. Featuring interviews with giants in the gaming industry of yesterday and today, this five-part series examines the evolution of the video game and its cultural impact on the world of entertainment today.

In the first week’s episode entitled “Level One”, Tommy along with Space Invader creator Tomohiro Nishikado explained (and hummed) how the audio and music creation in Space Invaders psychologically impacted the player.  Please make sure to tune in to future episodes to hear more about the history of video games and game audio from Tommy.
