Beep is a documentary history of game sound, from the Victorian penny arcades through pinball and the video games right up to 2015. Beep shows how technology and creativity combined to create some of the most memorable music of our time. Featuring major game composers, sound designers, programmers, and voice actors and directors, Beep explores all aspects of the auditory side of games.
First, I really enjoyed the history pictured in the documentary. It brought back a lot of memories and it was fun seeing back the old hardware and software I played with as a an adolescent.
But for a documentary about sound and music, this must be one of the worst edited ones. Ever.
Although in the program specialists repeatedly mention overdoing the use of music is just bad, the documentary is just doing that. Every single interview just had to have that repeating music score, did it? At the end, it annoyed me so much, I wasn't been able to hear the last 20 minutes or so as that score was driving me nuts. I was literally happy it finally was all over.
Such a pity the creators didn't even watch their own documentary and learned something from it. A real shame, as it was a very interesting topic.
