Session Name:

'Torn': Music Inside a Virtual Movie


The virtual reality game 'Torn' is a beautiful dark mysterious virtual movie which required a new and unique approach to designing and composing its score. In this 30 minute talk the composer, Garry Schyman ('Bioshock', 'Shadow of War') will explore his hybrid (game score/film score) soundtrack and how it functioned in the game. In addition, the composer, having found it nearly impossible to record his scores in recent years with the AFM (Musicians Union) players in Los Angeles, will review details of his successful negotiation making it possible to record the 'Torn' soundtrack with an orchestra in LA after a multi-year absence.
