You might not have heard of award-winning commercial composer Ravi Krishnaswami, but you have likely heard his tunes in your favorite TV shows and video games. Ravi joins Making Ways podcast to talk all about creating music for Super Bowl commercials and best-selling video games, his challenges in college, and his first steps breaking into the music industry. He even recounts the time Iggy Pop mistook one of his fictional video game tracks for a bona fide German rock and roll song and played it over the air on the BBC.
Along the way, Ravi shares the passions that fuel his creativity, like his songwriting as a solo artist, performing in The Smiths tribute band The Sons & Heirs, and mentoring students in music composition at Vermont College of Fine Arts.
