Workshop: Do 29.09., 13–18h im mica, Stiftgasse 29, 1070 Wien
ACHTUNG: Der Workshop ist bereits voll ausgebucht!
Panel: Fr 30.09., 16-17h anlässlich des WAVES festivals im WUK, Währinger Straße 59, 1090 Wien

Wie wird Musik für Spiele komponiert, ausgewählt und lizensiert? Welche Voraussetzungen muss man als MusikschaffendeR erfüllen um solche Lizensierungen zu begünstigen? Wie sieht der rechtliche Hintergrund aus? Mit welchen Strategien haben MusikerInnen erfolgreich Musik in Spielen platzieren können? Gibt es einen Masterplan oder passieren diese Erfolge einfach? Was bedeutet ein Track in einem Spiel für die Zahlen auf dem Bankkonto?
Videospielmusik wird in der Regel mehr gehört als herkömmlich rezipierte Musik. Das liegt schlicht daran, dass man Computerspielen oft viel Zeit widmet und dadurch der jeweilige Soundtrack besser und eindringlicher wirkt. Darüber hinaus verbinden SpielerInnen mit dem jeweiligen Musikstück meist bestimmte Erlebnisse im Spiel, und diese assoziative Kraft macht viel von der Magie von Game-Soundtracks aus. Was sind die zukünftigen Herausforderungen für Games-Musik? Was ist der kleinste gemeinsame Nenner zwischen Chipmusik und Orchester-Soundtrack? Werden Soundtracks und Soundeffekte künftig wieder mehr miteinander verschmelzen und adaptiver werden?
Am Donnerstag 29.09.16 werden im mica von 13:00-18:00 in einem Workshop-Setting die TeilnehmerInnen von einem internationalen Experten anhand ihrer Call-Einreichungen beraten und die Ausführungen von lokalen im Bereich tätigen Musikern und Sounddesignern ergänzt.

Am nächsten Tag werden die Themen anlässlich des WAVES festivals im WUK in einem moderierten Panel in großer Runde diskutiert.

Lukas Hasitschka
Founder Sound42, Drummer WANDA
Lukas is a musician and entrepreneur. A producer and a composer. A rock drummer and an avid follower of Schumann. The one word that describes him best: enthusiastic! Lukas Hasitschka made his way as a musician. While studying Jazz-drums in Vienna he was approached by a developer, and ultimately commissioned to create game audio. The game sparked his interest to produce more audio for games and Lukas came up with an idea: To form a team of composers and sound designers to achieve more collectively. The inception of his company Sound42 was the logical next step. Over the following years the company created the audio for many games of several Austrian developers. Ever since the time intensive and successful years with the group WANDA his production work is on hold. This is his first talk since joining the band.
TOPICS:
– personal approach to production practice
