Red Panda Audio are a music production and sound design duo who work within the realms of video games, film, documentaries & radio.The Pandas are otherwise known as Chris Light and Matthew Walker - producer/sound designer and composer respectively - and as you'l hear today, they are pretty fun.
In amongst this episode are discussions of cross collaboration between the two, some interesting approaches to method composing (stay tuned for that one), banter, laughs and a new name for a mash-up genre that we are trying desperately to coin...
There are two pieces we play during the show, the first is 3 min and the 2nd is 5 - stay tuned for those! As well as a funny message from the two after we say goodbye...!
