A postmortem of Garry Schyman and Mikolai Stroinski's score for the Ovid Works game Metamorphosis. This presentation will review the technical and creative aspects of a very unique score that utilizes techniques such as 12 tone composition, the use of the early 20th century expressionist vocal technique called sprechstimme and more.


We would like to impart to the composers in attendance the opportunities to be found in writing distinctive scores for unique games, and hope to inspire a spirit of experimentation.
