123rd AES Convention Workshop and Tutorial Chair Alex Case

AES 123rd Convention Workshop and Tutorial Chair Alex Case (pictured) invited THX Design Engineering Manager Steven Martz to develop events focusing on interactive game audio. The 123rd AES Convention will be held in New York City's Jacob Javits Convention Center, October 5-8 2007.

For "Adaptive Music for Games—Interactive XMF In Depth," technical lead Chris Grigg (IASIG; www.iasig.org) and panelists Simon Amarasingham (dSonic Inc.; www.dsonic.com) and Brian Gomez (Alchemic Productions; www.alchemicproductions.com) will discuss linear music in a non-linear world. They will address how a videogame’s completely interactive and unpredictable environment can reproduce continuous musical content capable of adapting to the playing experience.

In "Audio for Games: Dialog Recording, Workflow and Asset Management," Jory Prum (studio.jory.org) and Marc Schaefgen (Midway Home Entertainment) will provide a step-by-step look at the task of recording, editing and organizing voluminous amounts of material. Methods will be presented for script management, session setup and flow, and actor interfacing.

Marc Schaefgen (Midway Home Entertainment) will present "Developing Audio for Games," which addresses the evolution of game audio from simplistic bloops and bleeps to production values that rival Hollywood movies. This tutorial will detail the development cycle of the modern videogame from content creation to completion, with a special emphasis on the functionality of a well-integrated audio team.

“In chairing both the workshop and the tutorial committees, Alex Case has done an extraordinary job in researching and coordinating these AES Convention linchpins,” says Convention Chair Jim Anderson. “The diversity and authority of these events represent the apex of knowledge-sharing, and attendees are certain to reap long-term benefits from their participation.”
