with a focus on video game music history and development
When: January 18, 2011 between 16:00 to 21:00
Where: at Bergh Sveavägen 34 in Stockholm
And it’s FREE!
The event is aimed at everyone interested in retro-gaming. FutureGames invites both players, gaming enthusiasts and the game industry.
At 16-18 David Westerlund “From Blipp-Blopp to Art Music”
Video game music’s development from primitive audio chips to the symphony orchestra in concert.
David Westerlund was born in 1979 and grew up during the golden age of video games. He quickly became an avid gamer, which, combined with great interest in music led him to fall for video game music. David began by picking out songs from the games and play them on piano, and has since followed the genre’s harmonious development with great interest. He is a trained music teacher at the Royal College of Music and now works full time as a musician, lecturer and concert promoter for Game Music Entertainment in Stockholm, and lies behind such events as the world premiere of Castlevania The Concert. http://davidwesterlund.com
