Help with project? Please list fictional cities !

For a project I'm currently working on as part of my graduation in Graphic Design, I wanted to compile something like an atlas of fictional cities. These may be from books, legends, stories, video games, advertisements, comics, really whatever... Even "real" cities but alternate versions, imagined or in some way deviate from their real counterpart are valid. [more inside]

How can I be the next Koji Kondo?

I want to compose scores for video games as a career. I have no idea how to get there. I'm looking for advice from composers, game designers, and people generally working at the intersection of music and video games. [more inside]

What video game music could I arrange for one to three wind instruments?

I play clarinet in an orchestra that exclusively plays video game music, and there's an opportunity to a solo or small ensemble piece in the next concert if you can come up with your own music. Although I took two semesters of music theory, I don't think I'd be able to arrange anything involving piano- I'm looking for something that could be done with one to three wind instruments. Any ideas?

Apocalyptic Music?

Fallout 3 (trailers) and BioShock both have a strangely appealing music they play for mood in places. I'd like to hear more of it. Any idea what I'd call it, or how I'd find more of it? [more inside]
