In Austin Wintory’s words: ‘I have enjoyed a collaboration with Animex for years now, but to have the chance to present an entire concert of my music – plus some of my favorites from friends and colleagues – is a dream come true. With this incredible opportunity, they have managed to take my favorite festival and make it something even more. I am preparing all new versions of much of this music, in the hope of making it a memorable and exciting concert.’
Previous to the concert, on May 14th at 10 a.m. first and 1:30 p.m. later, Austin Wintory will offer a conference called ‘A decade in game scoring: I don’t know what I’m doing’ discussing how a decade in game scoring has revealed that he is still consistently finding new and unexplored concepts or ideas in each project, requiring the development of new solutions and strategies, and therefore also constant feelings of fear and impostor syndrome.
