113 Trust Your Inner Voice When Composing Music with Mikolai Stroinski

Mikolai Stroinski is a music composer that has worked on the Witcher 3, Dark Souls 2 trailer, Vanishing of Ethan Carter, and much more.

We discuss:

  • Think not just as a composer but as a video game maker as well. You don’t want to get too attached to your music because it might not fit the game.
  • Trust your inner voice because it's a sign to either continue or stop composing.
  • Study different music vocabularies and play lots of different games. Don't just study video game music.
  • Be a good human being because good karma ricochets back to you.
  • Don't think about just making money. Think about how you can contribute more and positively affect people's lives.
  • The challenges of getting a visa in America.
