'DOOM': Behind the Music


A detailed look into the compositional process, production techniques and creative philosophies behind the hell-raising soundtrack to the 4th installment of the seminal first-person shooter franchise, 'DOOM'. Composer Mick Gordon ('Killer Instinct', 'Wolfenstein: The New Order', 'Need for Speed') will give an insight into how to create a high-energy modern first-person-shooter soundtrack that unashamedly sits front-and-center, appeals to fans and stays true to the franchise. Covering musical sound design, synthesis techniques, compositional approach, interactive music, mixing, working remotely and idea generation, Mick will discuss the fine points behind creating an aggressive soundtrack that both engages the player and supports gameplay.
