Game Music Connect, hailed as “the video game music industry’s event of the year” by Classic FM, will be returning to the Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room in London on September 15, 2015.
Building on the symposium format of previous events, this year’s programme is set to feature sessions on the next frontier in video games, Virtual Reality, as well as sessions on diverse practical topics ranging from live orchestral recording and interactive music engines to sample library creation and showreel presentation.
The first announced session, To Be Or Not To Be: Music for V, will be a discussion on the role of music in VR experiences, looking at how the blurring of lines between sound and music in gaming is bringing the work of composers and sound designers closer together.
“We’re back bigger than ever for 2015 and with a longer running time, too,” said Game Music Connect founder and award-winning composer, James Hannigan.
“As well as the hot topic of VR and its implications for the game soundtrack, we’ll be delving deeper into interactive music, looking at sample library creation with a major library developer, talking about mockups, demos and showreels with the composers and a lot more besides.”
