Title: Film and Game Music Seminar
Post by: Melda on May 02, 2005, 03:22:22 AM
Well, apparently I am a guest speaker at a Film and Game Music seminar at the Queensland Conservatorium this Wednesday.

I guess this means I had better do some research about the state of the industry, hey? :)

Edit: I was going to talk about Blizzard games, such as WarCraft, since they're the ones I'm most familiar with, and Jason in particular. What do you think?

Good idea,

Also mention the soundtrack to Prince of Persia, which is amazing btw. It's a fusion of live metal and semi-orchestral/spacial music that truly gives the game it's appeal and saturates it in style, which is one of the big selling points.

As an experiment, play the game with the sound muted, the fight sequences aren't nearly as exhilerating without the music.

Big fan of the game, and the music, as you can probably tell ^^

At this stage I already have what I'm talking about pretty much formulated with my head. However, I think I will stick to game scores that I know and love (such as the latest Blizzard ones, by Jason and company, Arcanum, by Ben Hogue, and Morrowind, by Jeremy Soule).

However, I will use your advice about the importance of music in games, with regards to fight sequences and . . . well, everything. ;)

I have a lot to talk about, and it's all buzzing in my head. So I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow. :)

Thanks!  :)

I just got back from the session, and I'm quite exhausted at the moment.

I'll post more later, when I've recovered a bit. ;)
