PRESENTATION: “A Day in the Life of a Sound Designer”

Alex casts a wry eye on his profession of choice, taking us behind the scenes on a whistle-stop tour through a typically frenetic day in the life of an audio artist. What does a sound designer really do? And how do they do it? Marvel as Alex effortlessly crams 24 hours, video views, sfx tests, music and voice-over demos into ten miraculous minutes.

Audio artist and entrepreneur Alex relocated to Shanghai to take up the reigns of a post-production sound studio after five years as music producer and composer for Sony Music France, producing music for more than 30 record albums, including one Platinum Record and one Gold Record. Three years later, Alex built his dream studio, Game Audio Lab, one of the few worldwide sound studios dedicated exclusively to video games.  GAL are currently working on numerous major game projects including Call of Duty Online, Final Fantasy XIV and Transformers: Rising.

SCREENING: Diggin’ in the Carts’: The Dawn of a New Era

Over more than three decades, Japanese video games have featured some of the most recognizable melodies in the world of global pop culture,  yet most of the people who created these timeless tunes have remained faceless.  This new documentary series released by the Red Bull Music Academy tells the story of the men and women behind Japan’s greatest musical export.  Over six episodes, Diggin’ In The Carts explores the history of Japanese video game music from the 8-bit era until today. “We want to show that these Japanese men and women had an incredible influence on the global culture and on some of the biggest names in modern music,” says Nick Dwyer, the creator of the series.

In episode “The Dawn of a New Era”, the ’80s give way to the ’90s, 16-bit technology arrives and video games become more vivid and more dynamic than ever before.  Titles like Street Fighter 2 are contributing to a global video game boom and ensuring that the music of composers like Yoko Shimomura was blaring out of news agents, fish and chips shops, and arcades the world over.

展映游乐纪录片:《Diggin’ in the Carts’: 一个代的终结

重回红白机卡带的八位元世界,红牛音乐学院也将为您呈现记录短片《Diggin‘in the carts》,讲述关于电子游戏的配乐历史,深入探索这些在游戏介面背后默默谱曲的藏镜人们。

日本这个国家在很多领域都影响了我们的世界,他们的饮食文化,他们的科技,以及他们对流行文化的贡献,譬如— 电子游戏。对于我们大多数人来说,电子游戏的配乐在我们童年记忆中的比重,远超其他的音乐类型。尽管如此,我们对这些经典旋律的幕后作曲者却一无所知。

《Diggin‘in the carts》便是找寻那些启发了整整一个世代,并缔造了日本对全世界最悦耳的贡献的人们。
