New Scores: Merging Music & Gaming

Mar 12, 2024

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Music continues to converge with the games world, with major implications for our creative practice, including composition and live performance. From Marshmallow Laser Feast, Robin McNicholas shares his experience as Creative Director on RSC’s Dream, A Midsummer Night’s Dream live in Unreal, with an interactive soundtrack driven by the actors, using software created by composer Jesper Nordin. Nordin will discuss his generative compositional instrument - Reactional - that’s transforming music in Games. Ristband’s CEO Anne McKinnon will discuss their gaming platform for live music experiences.
