From pixel to polygon, from HD to VR: there can be no doubt that video games have surfaced as an all-encompassing art form that has pushed the limits of both creativity and technology. However, if a game’s visuals are its skin and clothes, the audio is its emotion and soul; game sound and music has evolved from beeps and boops to full-scale orchestrated scores offering a complete emotional experience, and melodies that will stick with us for a lifetime.
Leah Jewer and Catherine Smith-Desbiens of Girls on Games, along with artists Voyce* and Jess Abran, will be discussing how growing up alongside this evolution of gaming has inspired them as creators and coloured their music. With multiple performances by the Orchestre à Vents de Musiques de Films spanning several eras of music, and featuring original works by Sookz and both musical panelists, “Press Play: Every Gamer has a Music Story” will be an energetic evening of nostalgia, creative thought and, most importantly, them sweet, sweet gaming tunes.
