What's the best way to score Hell?

At GDC 2015, a panel of folks who worked on Diablo III: Reaper of Souls offered devs an answer by presenting an in-depth discussion of the strategies and challenges for creating the distinctive score of Diablo.

Together, the panel discussed how they craft the music behind gameplay, utilizing orchestras, choirs and cutting-edge technology to create the game's immersive world.

They also dug into their stylistic inspirations: the symphonic idioms of 19th and 20th century orchestral music, world music influences, modern cinematic scoring and unconventional aleatoric techniques, making for an eclectic conversation that fellow devs and audio professionals will enjoy. 

Now, you can watch it completely free via the official GDC Vault YouTube channel!
