COMPOSING IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY WITH SHAUN CHASIN

When you’re working in the music world you never know what gig and what association will put you to work. Composer Shaun Chasin knows this all too well. His musical pedigree (Chasin is a graduate of Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music) vets his abilities but opportunities are what makes for a career. Shaun has an eclectic list of accomplishment yet one of the most current and timely for this modern day composer are his creations for video games, including his most recent score for Quell 4D. Chasin’s association with Swedish Video Game Developer Felix Nordanåker has seen numerous collaborations resulting in epic and cinematic scores to video games. For the Canadian this is all a given in the career of a twenty-first century composer. One day he might be writing for TV or film and the next for the latest offering from a gaming company. Current day video games are massive productions with graphics and plotlines that rival any TV and film production, in large part because many of the same professionals work within all of these mediums. This holds true as well for composers like Shaun whose goal is essentially the same regardless of the production with one glaring exception.

BIG SHOW, BIG THEME SONG: SHAUN CHASIN


Ask anyone who does something artistic and creative as their vocation and they’ll tell you that there is a piece of themselves in everything they create. Though they might be given direction and boundaries, the inspiration that leads to success comes from a very personal place. When considering composer Shaun Chasin’s creation of the theme song for the animated series “Beyblade Burst” that might seem odd. A series appealing to the youth which centers on stories of competition against numerous adversaries might seem incongruent to that of a modern day adult composer/musician…but that would be an incorrect assumption. The Arts appeal to so many of us because we find their message relatable. It’s a skilled artist like Chasin who finds that connective tissue amongst all of us, regardless of age or aspiration, that stirs something. Getting to that point is not easy, as Shaun will readily tell you; but like the internationally hit show which his song is so identified with, it’s a journey that only the most committed and talented will finish.
