Beep is an upcoming documentary about the history of game sounds, ranging from Victorian mechanical games, to pinball machines to modern video games. The documentary was financed through crowdfunding and is set to come out this Summer. In the meantime, the creators have been releasing webisodes that are free to view. One such webisode is a 45 minute interview with Wing Commander composer George The Fat Man Sanger. They talk about his early career, getting into MT-32, composing for slot machines, and where he sees the industry moving.
At the 28:20 mark the topic shifts to Wing Commander, working with Dave Govett, and the very first sound awards at the GDC. You can watch the interview on Vimeo or embedded below. Vimeo also offers downloadable versions.
