|Overview:||With the increasing number of games made in China and for the Chinese market, it is becoming more and more essential for composers to learn the ins and outs of writing for Chinese traditional instruments. Using his score for Blue Callisto game Fantastic Creatures, composer Ian Chen offers a quick walkthrough on writing for traditional Chinese instruments, and how they may be applied in a Western symphonic setting. The session will cover everything from the introduction of instrumental family groups, to orchestration techniques, to the tools used in the recording and production of Chinese traditional instruments.|
