Linda Codega talks Vox Machina Vinyl with Sam Riegel #MusicMonday
The folks over at Gizmodo shared a first look at the new Vox Machina Vinyl and an exclusive interview with Sam Riegel! Take a close look at the vinyl – yup that’s right, it’s also a zoetrope!
io9: What was the process for collaborating with Neal Acree and Mr. Fantastic?
Riegel: The Scanlan songs are a collab between myself and my brother-in-law Peter Habib, who is a genius pop music producer. He and I met singing in an a cappella group at the University of Virginia (the Academical Village People). We ended up marrying sisters from a different a cappella group, and now we’re all related. So I’ve been making music with Peter for decades. Neal, on the other hand, we were so fortunate to find. He is such an incredible composer, and when we learned he was a fan of Critical Role, it was a no-brainer to bring him onboard. The creative team usually chats with Neal long before the episodes are animated, to give him the vibe of each episode so he can plan his score months in advance. Then when we get animation back from our overseas studio, he already more or less has a sense of what he’s going to do. There is a lot of score in our show, and I don’t know how he gets it all done in time. But somehow, he does.
