                 "The Origin of Scoring - Music Design for an Audience with Agency."   

                 Talk description:  Since the inception of film and games music has played an important role in how we tell stories. Often as game developers we look to film as a paradigm for how music should function in games. In this talk we will discuss how music contributes to a film experience, and explore ways in which we can transform and adapt our tools for designing music to an interactive medium. By structuring elements of the music to synergize with game design, we can utilize music to communicate with the player and give them an advantage during play.
