Annual Game Music Award won by A Composer’s Guide to Game Music


I’m pleased to announce that my book has won an Annual Game Music Award from Game Music Online!

Founded in 2003, the Game Music Online site specialises in daily news, high-quality reviews, insightful interviews, and comprehensive artist profiles in the field of video game music.  Since 2010, the staff of accomplished music journalists of Game Music Online has presented awards in many categories that acknowledge the diversity and range of the video game music genre.

This is how A Composer’s Guide to Game Music was described in the Annual Game Music Awards official announcement, released earlier this week:

A Composer’s Guide to Game Music isn’t the first of its kind, but it’s certainly among the very best. LittleBigPlanet composer Winifred Phillips offered an accessible yet deep insight into the process of making game music, balancing a focus on creative aspects with considerations of technical and business aspects.

The Annual Game Music Awards are organized by Chris Greening, who leads a distinguished staff of music journalists in providing vibrant articles and reviews for their Game Music Online readers.  In this capacity, Greening has reviewed over a thousand albums and interviewed hundreds of musicians across the world. As the founder and webmaster of Game Music Online, Greening has built a cutting-edge, journalistic resource for video game music enthusiasts.  Adding to his accomplishments, Greening will soon be co-authoring the companion book to the highly-anticipated upcoming documentary, “Beep: A Documentary History of Game Sound.”

Thanks so much to Game Music Online for recognizing my book in the Best Publication Category of the Annual Game Music Awards!

  1. That is great news! After showing my librarian from SAE Brisbane my blog about the cycle of inspiration, and telling him about A Composers Guide to Game Music, has ordered a copy for our campus library. Can’t wait to be the first person from our institution to hire it out! 🙂 Congratulations Winifred!
