Panel Discussion

Music in Games: Interactive Adventures in Music and Sound

What started as soundtracks of primitive synthesizer ditties (think Donkey Kong or Mario) has evolved over a generation into complete symphony orchestras, Grammy-winning songs, compositions by the likes of Trent Reznor and Hans Zimmer, hit playlists and as many more musical opportunities as you can imagine. There are even video game courses at major music colleges. Gaming may indeed be the platform your music was meant for all along. This panel of experts examines the game platform, its musical needs and possibilities and how it relates to you.
