Storytelling with Music (Videogames and Other Media)
Talk Description: I will be talking about how video games and films use music to assist in expressing their messages. Examples include Ace Attorney, Paper Mario Origami King, and Star Wars the Rise of Skywalker. Then I will briefly go over my journey to entering this world and how others can get started without requiring musical experience.
Speaker Bio: I am a content strategist and I love video game music! Before my current position, I spent a few quarters in college interning as a musical composer with a video game company. While I don’t currently compose, my friends can testify that I’ve bored them to death on this subject countless times.
