Matthew Tucciarone-- known as Major Third on his video game music show-- has amicably agreed to expound with us on the nature of dynamic music, spreading knowledge throughout the world as he goes. What's the difference between dynamic and static music exactly, and where does Luigi's Mansion fit into the picture? These sorts of questions are exactly what Train Station at 8 tries to answer this week.
