Audio Keynote - Game Audio Culture: The Big Picture

Thursday 11th July: 17.00 - 17.45 : Room 6

Audio director and writer, Rob Bridgett, draws on two decades of creating pioneering AAA game audio to reflect on what constitutes a balanced approach to making sound and music for videogames. In an ever-changing and inconsistent world, what grounds game audio practitioners to make them most effective within a fast moving, multi-disciplinary team environment as collaborative game developers as well as experts in their specialism?

In this keynote, Rob will discuss useful lenses which can be applied at almost every scale of comprehension of what it is we do and how it is we can achieve the critical quality of balance – understanding ourselves, our team, what we’re making, and most importantly, understanding the audience we are creating games for.
