MUSIC COMPOSITION FOR VIDEO GAMES
- Tuesday, Jan 20, 2015 at 7pm
- Kenley Kristofferson, Composer
- Manitoba Music Resource Centre
- 1-376 Donald Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba
Presented by New Media Manitoba and Manitoba Music
Writing and orchestrating music for games has evolved and branched into an accessible, entirely viable way for today's composers to make a living with music. Big-budget AAA games have co-opted the studio orchestras and recording spaces of Hollywood films, and smaller indie games provide independent composers a means with which to broadcast their music to a massive and enthusiastic audience. Any way you slice it, video games are the newest, broadest, and most exciting way to make a living writing music today.
This workshop is ideal for beginner to experienced musicians, and composers, or anyone interested in learning how video game music is created.
