We are now soliciting paper proposals focusing on the symposium theme of:
Models, Theories and Approaches
While recognising concerns idiosyncratic to the sub-discipline, video game music scholarship maintains connections with film music studies and musicological practice, and embraces the composition, performance, interaction and commercial facets of the medium. The development, application and evaluation of analytical approaches to game music scholarship continues to manifest debate, and this discussion forms the theme of this symposium.
