Presentations and a dialog with the people creating compelling and groundbreaking games that integrate music into gameplay. This isn't about music for games, but rather games in which music is a core interactive element. Presenters include: Dain Saint, of Cipher Prime, a game developer in Philadelphia whose successful game titles epitomize how significant this category can be, both creatively and commercially. Youngmoo Kim leads innovative research into the area of games and music at Drexel University, and is creating amazing gameplay in the process.
The presentations will be followed by a concert of local chiptune artists. Chiptune is a category of music created largely on videogame hardware hacked into usefulness for music creation.
