Imuse Island has interviewed Peter McConnell, the co-composer on LucasArts classics such as Monkey Island 2, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis and Grim Fandango. Check it out over at Imuse Island.
Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's revenge, was one of the first adventures that did not only use music in some key scenes, but had non-stop music throughout the whole game. It also worked with a lot of themes (e.g. for LeChuck, for Largo, for the Voodoo Lady). What can you tell us about this game?
If I'm not mistaken The Secret of Monkey Island® also had non-stop music, but that was Michael's project, before my time, so to speak. He did a lot of the original themes then: LeChuck, the Voodoo Lady, Guybrush and Governor Marley's love music. Largo's theme is interesting because it's an example of our collaboration: I wrote the "head" of the theme and Michael did the bridge.
