The video game industry has evolved into a massive and influential presence in media entertainment. Game music has likewise grown exponentially with devoted followings, millions of sales and streams, mainstream soundtrack releases, and even fully-orchestrated concerts worldwide. If one is not already entrenched in the interactive gaming sphere, breaking the barrier into hearing, experiencing, and composing video games can be challenging. So, how can non-gamers break through those entry barriers to fully experience and appreciate these modern music masterpieces and the composers who create them? Join us for this conversation about how to break through the blockades to the game scoring world so that non-gamers can join in on the fun, level up, listen to, experience, and enjoy these dynamic soundtracks.

“The thing I love above all about writing music for games is making music where the player feels like a real meaningful co-author of the experience,” says Wintory. “And that they feel like they are shaping what they hear, that they aren’t just being subjected to it in the way they are in music, or films, or even performances: they are actively helping figure out how everything unfurls for them. It’s an art form that has no real equivalent, anywhere else.”
