Game Music Connect organizers today announced that its 2014 international video game music conference, which returns to London's Southbank Centre on September 24, will be supported by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA).
Game Music Connect is for aspiring and professional composers of all backgrounds and those interested in learning about the art and craft of creating video game soundtracks.
"Game Music Connect shares BAFTA's mission to champion creative excellence in games, sharing the insights and tricks of the trade of some of the most exciting names in games composition – including this year's BAFTA winner Garry Schyman, who will be the subject of 'The BAFTA Interview," said Tim Hunter, Director of Learning and Events at BAFTA. "We're only too happy to be part of this passionate band of devotees, flying the flag for this specialist craft which makes such an important contribution to today's videogame experiences."
Game Music Connect is the love child of BAFTA award-winning composer James Hannigan (Command & Conquer and Harry Potter series – and noted game audio director, composer and industry commentator John Broomhall (Forza Motorsport 5, Transport Tycoon).
The event features interviews, demonstrations, and roundtable discussions with leading composers, music supervisors, and audio directors
