Steve Martz, Game Audio Track Chair for the AES 131st Convention

The AES announces Game Audio Track Events for the 131st Convention, as programmed by Game Audio Track Chair Steve Martz (pictured). The 131st Audio Engineering Society Convention will be held in New York City at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, from Thursday, October 20 through Sunday, October 23, 2011.

131st Convention Chair Jim Anderson states that Martz "is deeply immersed in every facet of this burgeoning industry. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of the creatives, the manufacturers and the audience, and he’s tapped that pool of experts liberally in his pursuit of a record-breaking score for this year’s event.”

Game Audio Track Events include Emerging Trends In Audio For Games, with AES Technical Committee on Audio for Games Co-Chairs Michael Kelly (SCEE) and Steve Martz (THX, Ltd.); History of Audio Implementation Toolsets, presented by Damian Kastbauer of Bay Area Sound; Education: Prerequisites for a Career in Game Audio, a panel moderated by Stephen Harwood Jr. of IASIG and Dynamic Systems Music; Careers in Game Audio, a panel also moderated by Harwood; Audio For Motion Controllers, a panel chaired by Microsoft's Scott Selfon; and Game Audio Programming For Android: FMOD Versus Java, with Peter Drescher of Twittering Machine.

Included in the full program of Workshops and Panels, the Game Audio Program will offer three 20-minute crash courses on specific designer preferences. Scheduled presentations include Distortionation (sic); O3—Occlusion, Obstruction, and other Obstacles; and My Favorite Plug-In.

“Our goal was to devise the most useful program possible for videogame professionals,” Martz says. “The 12 Workshops and Panels in this year’s Game Audio Track represent an extremely comprehensive assessment of the issues, technologies and creative thinking impacting today’s game industry. We are confident that attendees will walk away with information that will be of great use to them, and that they will also appreciate the opportunity to meet with their peers on the AES Convention’s clear and open playing field.”
