SoundCon LLC announces that Marty O’Donnell, director of audio at Bungie Studios, will present the keynote address at GameSoundCon L.A. 2009, to be held on September 24 and 25 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles. O’Donnell has been audio director for Bungie Studios since 2000 and composed music for the massively successful HALO series of videogames for the Xbox and Xbox 360.

GameSoundCon is the leading videogame music and sound design conference for the professional and desktop audio community.

“I’m thrilled to have Marty, composer and audio director of one of the most iconic games of our generation to give our keynote address,” says GameSoundCon director Brian Schmidt. “In addition to composing one of the most instantly recognizable videogame themes in recent memory, Marty is known for keeping the bar high and pushing the boundaries forward in videogame music composition and videogame sound design.  Marty’s background in both the traditional music and videogame industries will give GameSoundCon attendees a real-world perspective on crossing over from traditional audio to the world of videogames.”

“There are huge differences between composing film music and composing videogame music. Videogame sound design also presents special challenges unique to videogames,” says O’Donnell. “GameSoundCon provides the essential information anyone serious about doing videogame music or videogame sound design needs to know and I’m excited to be a part of it.”

In addition to the keynote address, GameSoundCon features two days of seminars and panels on videogame music composition and videogame sound design, focusing on the unique technical, creative and business challenges of working in the videogame industry.

Early bird discount registration for GameSoundCon Los Angeles runs through August 18, 2009; Mix readers are eligible for $100 off registration by using promo code MIX811.
