GameSoundCon 2021 Is On: Virtually

GameSoundCon, the largest professional conference for video game music and sound design, will be held from November 8-10, 2021. Following last year's success, the event will again be held in a virtual format. The organisers tellus that attending this event from the comfort of your own home has proven to be very appealing to game audio professionals in 2020 as the attendance far exceeded previous years' numbers.

Conference Founder and Executive Director, Brian Schmidt, told us,  "Going virtual for the first time last year was definitely a challenge - and it turned out great with over 1,100 virtual attendees. But I feel this year we're kicking it up even more, knowing what works best in this format and having experienced what attendees found to be most valuable."

Here's more details direct from GameSoundCon...

A great investment for game sound pros and those who are interested in learning more about that career path, registration to this premier conference is now open and tickets are only $75 each. Again this year, GameSoundCon will donate a portion of the ticket prices to Education Through Music-Los Angeles. Last year, the donation amounted to $20,000 and helped the organization to support in-school music education among disadvantaged Los Angeles communities.

Speakers at GameSoundCon 2021 include the legendary Tom Salta who will be presenting on "Interactive Music Composition" and will also give a talk about composing the music for Deathloop. Tom has worked on Halo (Multiple versions), Killer Instinct, Prince of Persia, Wolfenstein:Youngblood, Ghost Recon, Red Steel, and other games.
