Building Soundtracks

Bringing the story to life through music

Back by popular demand, composer, musician, writer, and ABC Classic presenter, Meena Shamaly joins the MusicEDU webinar panel again for GameComposer – Building Soundtracks!

Join us for a lively discussion on Dynamic Music and its purpose and impact on the narrative of video games. 

This interactive webinar is about bringing stories to life through music.

Together, we’ll explore the effect of dynamic scoring, and the compositional devices used in a range of video game music.

Discover how to ‘level up’ your students’ understanding of rhythmic, harmonic, and expressive techniques using real-world, relevant topics like video gaming, and discuss the inspirations your students can draw from, across many subjects, to further develop their music writing journeys. 

In this MusicEDU exclusive event, we’ll also have the opportunity to analyse the theme from the recently released Australian video game Innchanted with one of the composers of the original soundtrack – the one and only Meena Shamaly!  

So clear your diary, save your seat, and get your GAME ON
