Today's game soundtracks are composed and recorded using the latest music technology, live musicians, and in some cases, full orchestras and choirs. Experienced composers, who have written for games as well as film and television projects, will engage in a lively panel discussion with game developers and an agent who represents the top composers in the game business. As a group, they will discuss bridging the gap between the film/television and gaming worlds, developing new techniques and technology, approaches to writing for different formats, and the business of being a composer in the world of games. Featured panelists (note revised list) will include:

RUSSELL BROWER - Composer, Audio Director/Novalogic. MICHAEL GIACCHINO - Composer "Medal of Honor" (games), "Alias" (TV). BILLY MARTIN - Composer "Treasure Planet" (games), "Entertainers" (TV).
