Game Music for Daily Living

Scarlet Moon Productions had the honor of attending and presenting at Gamer’s Rhapsody this past weekend, and we wanted to make available our slides from the Game Music for Daily Living presentation which explores the use of game music to help you sleep, relax, exercise, and celebrate holidays such as Christmas and Halloween. Embedded music samples act as references and encourage you to seek out other resources and music releases for even more music to use throughout your day!
