In Memoriam


Former Section Officer Glenn D. White passed away on 12/4/2014 after a long illness. Glenn was a founding member of this section, and will always be remembered as a true Rennaisance Man, who could hold his own on myriad topics from Audio to Zinfandel. Glen was the author of the Audio Dictionary, now in it's third printing (with PNW Secretary Gary Louie as co-author).

In 2013, the AES PNW Section learned all about the sound effects for "Forza Motorsport 4." Meeting Report

Now, we can see how the music score for the franchise update is created and recorded from Lead Composer, Lance Hayes.

This will be a detailed look at how the soundtrack to one of the first next gen video game soundtracks for the Xbox One was conceived and executed. Augmented by notes, images and video, Lance Hayes will detail the process of creating the 180 minute soundtrack using live orchestra and electronics from initial concepts to the composition phase to nation-wide recording at top facilities to final implementation and then on to release of the game and the soundtrack double album.


Lance Hayes is an award winning composer working in media, advertising, television, and video game soundtracks. Some of his projects include composing and producing music for "Nike+ Kinect Fitness," the Stranded Music for the mega hit video game "Gears of War 3," music for "Xbox Fitness" and scoring the original soundtracks to the sensational "Forza Motorsport" series including the Xbox One launch title "Forza Motorsport 5". Additional clients include Activision, The Discovery Channel, Warner Bros., Best Buy, National Geographic, Harpo Inc., MTV, VH1 and many others.

He takes pride in his work as an educator teaching the Game Audio and Composition track for both the Summer Intensive and the Masters of Music program at Seattle's Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program and was nominated for a GANG Award for his educational "Next Level" series blog for Andertons Music UK.

As an in demand teacher and lecturer Lance has had the good fortune to present sessions at The Game Developer's Conference, PAX Dev, Seattle Composers Alliance, AES, SynthFest NW, The Art Institute, Academy of Interactive Entertainment, Berklee School of Music Video Game Music Club, Decibel Festival Conference and more.
