Game Audio: G11 - Interactive Music of the LittleBigPlanet Franchise: Dissecting A Complex, Multi-Component System

Winifred Phillips, Generations Productions LLC - New York City Metropolitan Area

This talk will explore the structure and deployment strategies for multiple music tracks composed in a system of dynamic layers for six LittleBigPlanet games. Composer Winifred Phillips has over 11 years of game industry experience, including six games in the famous LittleBigPlanet franchise: LittleBigPlanet 2, LittleBigPlanet Toy Story, LittleBigPlanet Cross Controller, LittleBigPlanet PS Vita, LittleBigPlanet Karting, and LittleBigPlanet 3. This talk will cover issues of importance to composers, audio engineers and sound designers when working with a highly layered music system. Attendees will be alerted to common problems associated with a layered system, and Phillips will reveal useful tips that she learned along the way, and common sense strategies that can be employed for any layered music system, whether it’s designed to be modest or large-scale.
