Playfulness as a practice can harvest rich ideas, create new workflows, and help with mastering tools. But what value can playfulness bring as part of a healthy career?
This presentation takes a broad overview of game audio culture and gives inspiration to implement experimentation in your everyday work by looking at concrete examples. Whether using an oven as a guitar amp, creating an accordion out of Wii remotes, or building games within non-standard engines, this talk will take a peek at ways to push the boundaries of audio software and inspire your game audio practice.
Attendees will gather inspiration to see their everyday work in a new light. By studying audacious experiments done by game audio professionals, attendees will gain insight into playful workflows that can lead to extraordinary outcomes.
