Session Name: A Modern Take on Historical Fiction: Music for 'Call of Duty WWII'
Speaker(s): Wilbert Roget
Company Name(s): Independent
Track / Format: Audio
Overview: Though the franchise is known for its slick, high-octane gameplay, 'Call of Duty: WWII' posed the unique challenge of going back to the series' roots with a historical World War II time period. This session will use specific examples from the score to show how RogetMusic satisfied the dramatic needs of a modern action game, while simultaneously expressing the historical setting with authenticity and respect. The discussion will include their use of instrumentation, playing technique, signature sounds and designed elements, and melodic and harmonic restraint, as well as give insights on the meaning of a "modern" cinematic orchestral score.
