GABE ALVAREZ, STARCALLED

Texas-based composer Gabe Alvarez writes and composes for Starcalled, an action space sci fi audio drama with an epic cinematic score. Gabe shows us that creators need to write and make the content that they themselves want to hear.

NATE FISHER, OBSERVE AND REPORT

Nate Fisher composes epic music for the sci fi audio drama Observe and Report, which tells the story of an earthbound alien called Zuri. He shows us how limiting it can be creating from templates to avoid compositions from all sounding the same.

ABOUT THIS SHOW

How I Make Music is where audio drama composers get to tell their own stories. In a dramatically edited sound experience, we challenge composers to break apart a song, soundtrack or composition and get into why and how it was made.
