Another GDC has come and gone and of course it is that time for the 11th annual G.A.N.G awards. Some surprises this year included past featured Alpha Omega Radio composer Chance Thomas receiving the G.A.N.G recognition award for his efforts on having video game music recognized by the grammies. Chance was one of the original founders of G.A.N.G and it is wonderful to have his work recognized by the community! Journey was the top pick in many categories and racked up 5 G.A.N.G awards for music of the year, best interactive score, best original instrumental and best original vocal song! Other games that received multiple awards included Halo 4 and Far Cry 3.

Also I would like to give a shout out to up and coming game composer Anastasia Devana (keyboardist for Ashentide and scoring “Anima: Gate of Memories”) on her win for Student/Apprentice Award with Hillbilly Robot Mafia”, a very fun track with bluegrass, fiddle and electronica!

Congratulations to all that one and we can’t wait to see what the year 2013 is going to be bring!

The rest of the award winners are listed below :D
