Virt talks Shantae, harnessing dog crotch sounds and more


9:30 AM on 09.07.2013



Last time on Sup Holmes (now on itunes) we were graced with the effervescent presence of composer and developer Jake "Virt" Kaufman. This man is so packed with passionate ideas that they seem to be spilling out everywhere. He's currently working as a solo artist, composing music for Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, Shantae: Half-Genie HeroShovel Knight, and Boot Hill Heroes (and creating his own games (like Dickhand). We learned all about Jake's "photographic" memory for melody, his experiences playing live shows, collaborating with with Manami Matsumae (Mega Man and Mighty Number 9 composer), creating composing software, singing Raffi's hit single Banana Phone, and a lot more. 

If you have even a passing interest in video game music, this episode is a required listen. In fact, I'm going to go on record to say that everyone interested in interesting people anywhere should get to know Jake Kaufman. Funny, insightful, humble, and talented, he's truly a talk show dream come true. 

Jake makes for a tough act to follow, but WayForward co-founder and Shantae creator Matt Bozon will do his best to take that challenge on Sunday 1pm PST/4pm EST. Watch us cap off WayForgust in style!
