Fokus Session: "Music & Gaming - New Markets, new Dimensions" on 16 March
The focus session "Music & Gaming - New Markets, new Dimensions" on Tuesday, 16 March, will take a deep look into the existing relationships between games and music to explore new ways and ideas for the creative industries.
Every Gamer knows "Sandstorm" by Darude by heart, a hit from 1999, which brought it to Meme Status in the Twitch Community, the largest e-Sports platform. In the meantime, Darude regularly performs at major E-Sport festivals and his music has become the standard background sound in breaks between games. Even Metallica, Imagine Dragons and Zedd have appeared with live shows in front of gamers, but most artists have overslept the trend so far. It's time to take a closer look at this phenomenon to unlock a new dimension in the potential of gaming and music! Especially in these times in which we have more than ever in the creative industry the chance to create new synergies.
Please meet some big players in this field who are closing the gap between E-Sports, games and music industry: Stéphane Herve (Composer, producer & arranger, Nintendo / A&R, Crosslight Global Entertainment, FR), Xavier Norindr (Executive Music Producer, Nintendo / Director & Producer, Crosslight Global Entertainment, FR), Ben Sumner (Managing Director & Founder, Feel for Music, UK), Christopher Tin (Two-time Grammy Winning Composer, US) and many more to discuss how Corona affects the game industries and how the music industry nevertheless can stay fresh, sexy, and attractive. We're especially excited to talk with two-time Grammy winner Christopher Tin about his perspective as a composer on the current situation and future of games & music.
Media partner of the monthly focus sessions is the magazine MusikWoche.
