Game Music Conference

This January, TCU (that's Texas Christan University in Ft. Worth, Texas) will be holding the North American Conference on Video Game Music. This is the second year the conference will be held and they chose to do it in Ft. Worth. I'm not sure why, but we'll roll with it. If you're a student or faculty member of TCU, you get in for free. The rest of us will have to pay $100. $75 for a graduate student...psh. How much of a kick in the butt is that? You're paying more money for an advanced degree and you still don't get the perks of being a student.

The keynote speaker is Winfred Phillips, who has a longstanding history with Sony and Media Molecule, helping design the music for all of the Little Bit Planet, God of War, and Assassin's Creed: Liberation. The rest of the speakers are all university related, most from the Texas region, and all under musical theory. This is an academic outing on a fun topic.

I may attend. There is no listing yet on what the topics for each panel will be, so I'll wait until that's released before deciding. But hey, if you're in the area, you're bored the weekend of January 17th, then go for it.
