Music has always played an important role in computer games, setting up mood, providing rhythm and bringing tension. Behind every piece of¬†game music is a composer, using his talent and skills to enhance our overall gaming experience.
That is why Game Industry Conference 2019 once again introduces¬†Epic Game Music Award¬†‚Äď an event aimed at identifying and awarding talented video game music makers.
We focus on game music tracks, that are epic and will allow for an orchestral arrangement with choir where required, composed for games released not more than a year ago.
In the verification process their work will be reviewed by the Epic Game Music Award jury.
Finally, the Winner‚Äôs track will be performed during¬†GIC¬†and¬†PGA, at the¬†Epic Game Music Concert¬†‚Äď a wonderful, symphonic music show planned for Friday, October 18th at Earth Hall (on the premises of PoznaŇĄ International Fair). There will be two concerts, one for general audience, while another one for VIPs, press, national delegations and GIC attendees. The orchestra will play Polish and international epic game tracks, both well known hits and premiere ones… possibly including your composition.
