The Legacy Music Hour: Matt Furniss

The work of composer Matt Furniss is the focus of Episode 143, with very special in-studio guest, Matt Furniss himself.  Originally from England, Matt started composing music for computer and video games professionally when he was only 16 years old.  He’s done original soundtracks to tons of Genesis games, and has also arranged pre-existing soundtracks to tons more.  His credits list is huge.  Brent and Rob (and Matt) primarily look at Matt’s original Genesis material, but also throw in a couple non-Genesis tracks of his, as well as a couple non-Furniss, Furniss-approved tracks.  Full track listing below.
