THE LIFE OF A FREELANCE GAME COMPOSER – THURSDAY at 5PM (in Panels 3)
I’ll cover several aspects of freelance composing, covering technical stuff, music stuff, how to approach new projects, distribute your music, and so on. My panel is somewhat conjoined with the following panel hosted by Jimmy Hinson (Mass Effect 2), Andrew and Jill Aversa (Zircon), and Will Roget (LucasArts). Between the two panels you’ll learn all about how to approach clients, how to network, what gear is good to start and good to upgrade to, and you’ll hear from tomorrow’s game composers.
INDIE GAME MUSIC 101 – SATURDAY at 4PM (in Panels 3)
I’ll be joined by Danny Baranowsky (SUPER MEAT BOY!) and Justin Johnson (RADIO FREE GAMER) and go over some of the best soundtracks in the indie game world from today and yesterday. This is a great chance to just hang out with us and listen to some great music.
