Session Name:

Freelance Music Design and Beyond


Imagine being part of a freelance game music team that covers every inch of the production pipeline, from music direction, music design, composition and orchestration, to recording, editing, music integration, and scripting. A seamless coordinated effort with clear communication across disciplines and specialties. One that is prepared to adapt to tight schedules and the zigs and zags of the typical development process, yet one that doesn't shy away from rich adaptive music concepts and designs. In fact, the overarching goal of such a team would be to bring well designed, tightly integrated music scores to games in an efficient manner. This is the prescient dream of this lecture.nnThis lecture will take on 3 aspects of the pipeline that are not often outsourced; music design, music integration, and music scripting, describing how each can be successfully offered by freelance music teams. Wwise-Unity adaptive music compositions will illustrate specific concepts and techniques.
