GameSoundCon2014

I’m excited to be part of this year’s GameSoundCon in downtown LA, Oct 7-8 at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel. I’ll be discussing composing for AAA games, my work on the Forza series as well as participating in roundtable events. I’m looking forward to catching up with fellow lecturers and game audio maestros of music, sound and VO including the legendary Marty O’Donnell, Guy Whitmore, Paul Lipson, Austin Wintory,¬†Penka Kouneva, Brian Schmidt and Jack Wall, to name but a few. Anyone identifying as a sound designer or composer should attend GameSoundCon and, as luck would have it, early bird registration is still available. See you in LA!GameSoundCon2014Peeps

I’m looking forward to speaking at this years PAX Dev. Our session titled “Game Audio Pipeline: Core Concepts and Roles” will focus on audio team roles, best practices, vetting suggestions and practical tips to help ensure that you get the best audio for your project.

If you’re attending, expect a fun session that will leave you better informed on the roles that the various audio team members play as well as how to find them and what to look for in a candidate. Not to be missed and there will be more details soon.
