The organisers of Game Music Connect 2015 have announced that this year’s opening keynote will be delivered by Playstation.
Chuck Doud, director of music for Sony Computer Entertainment America Worldwide Studios, will open the conference with a talk on “Sony’s current and future visions for video game scoring” as well as touching on the role music plays in today’s games.
He has previously worked on titles such as The Last of Us, Journey, Uncharted, InFamous and God of War.
Meanwhile, Sony’s in-house Project Morpheus team will also host sessions discussing the meaning of music in virtual reality. They will discuss the trials they have already conducted with VR demos and shared what they have learned.
The Playstation sessions add to a roster of high-profile speakers, which includes Creative Assembly’s Sam Cooper and Byron Bullock, the team behind Alien: Isolation, and composers Joe Henson and Alexis Smith, who have worked on Assassin’s Creed IV, Alien: Isolation and more.
Game Music Connect 2015 takes place on September 15th at London’s Southbank Centre. You can find out more at www.gamemusicconnect2015.com.
