Session Name The Art of Noise: Incorporating Aleatoric Techniques in Your Scores
Speaker(s) Jason Graves, Garry Schyman
Company Name(s) Jason Graves Music, Inc., Garry Schyman Productions
Track / Format Audio

Aleatoric writing (sometimes referred to as extended techniques) has been widely used by avant-garde composers over the past half century, but only recently been incorporated in scores for video games. Two composers in particular, Garry Schyman (Bioshock) and Jason Graves (Dead Space), have incorporated these techniques into their work, receiving much attention for their unique and award-winning scores.? This lecture will demystify this style through classical literature, modern film scores and the panelist's own video game scores, illustrating the real-world value of these techniques through written conductor's scores and accompanying audio examples.
