INTERVIEW – In Conversation With Peter McConnell (Video Game Composer and Musician, Grim Fandango Remastered)

By Marty Mulrooney

Peter McConnell Grim Fandango Remastered Interview

Alternative Magazine Online recently reviewed Grim Fandango Remastered, describing it as “a 17-year-old classic LucasArts game remastered in HD, looking and sounding better than it has ever done.” This was in large part due to the remastered score, with many of the songs now fully orchestrated by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. Therefore, AMO is delighted to welcome back the game’s award-winning composer Peter McConnell (Monkey Island 2, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Full Throttle) for yet another exclusive online interview!
