GameSoundCon announces that Karen Collins, a leading and prolific academic in the field of game audio, will bring her film crew to GameSoundCon, the premier game music and sound design conference, to cover the event and to interview attendees and speakers for the Kickstarter-funded documentary, Beep: A Documentary History of Video Game Music and Sound. GameSoundCon 2014 will be held on October 7-8 at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.
“With several different tracks for professional composers and sound designers, GameSoundcon is the ideal gathering to get a chance to talk to the elite in video game sound,” Collins says. “Just look who’s going to be there: the composers and sound designers for games like Halo, Destiny, BioShock II, Skyrim, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Forza. People like Marty O’Donnell, Garry Schyman, Grammy nominee Austin Wintory, Paul Lipson, and Steve Horowitz—they all really know the business and have great stories to tell.”
Apart from the interviews Colins’ team will conduct at the conference, her documentary Beep will include behind the scenes making-of footage for sound effects, voice and music, the psychology of game sound, chiptunes and current uses of game sound technology outside games, the tools and techniques used to compose the music and sound, and tips how to get into the industry.
