GameSetWatch contributor and Nobuooo founder Jeriaska has filmed a compelling collection of interview/performances from Japanese video game composers, indie game music artists, and chiptune performers for a 'Videogame Music in Context' DVD series he's trying to raise funding for.

The Kickstarter initiative includes a Videogame Music in Context in Japan DVD, an Independent Videogame Music in Context DVD, a Nullsleep Collapsed Desires Tour DVD, and a double-disc Hydorah Original & Arrange Soundtrack Album -- depending on how much you pledge to the project, you can get one or all of them.

Videogame Music in Context in Japan features interviews with Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy), Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill), Hirokazu "Hip" Tanaka (Metroid), Hideyuki Fukasawa (Super Street Fighter IV), Hideki Sakamoto (echochrome ii), Noriyuki Asakura (Tenchu 4), Takashi Tokita & Naoshi Mizuta (Final Fantasy Legends), and other game creators.

The Independent Videogame Music in Context DVD offers recent interviews with Baiyon (PixelJunk Lifelike), Dan Paladin (Castle Crashers), Daisuke Amaya (Cave Story), Shinji Hosoe & Ayako Saso of SuperSweep (Prismatic Solid), Nigoro (La-Mulana), Takashi Iura (PixelJunk Monsters) and more developers that will be announced later.

As for the Nullsleep Collapsed Desires Tour DVD, that will include live performances from the 2010 Collapsed Desires Tour, which features chip music artists Nullsleep, Trash80, Starpause, Crashfaster, and Mr. Spastic. It also has omake bonus material from the 2010 Tokyo Blip Festival.

Needless to say, the series is packed with content that anyone interested in video game music should be interested in. You can pledge some cash to the fund and learn more about 'Videogame Music in Context' at its Kickstarter project page.
