Eimear Noone Event
August 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$25.00
Media composer and conductor, Eímear Noone will take us through what’s new and upcoming in the Irish Video Game industry, whilst sharing her own experience in the global world of video games and interactive art – from traditional console games to Massively Multiplayer Online games, 3D, VR and holograms! With live string quartet arrangements of some of our favorite game themes and an exposition of “Gaming in Symphony”, her film with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Noone presents an entertaining and enlightening look at the artistic possibilities within this global social juggernaut.
At this point in the 21st Century, Video Games have developed into something more becoming of the term “interactive pop art”. Ireland is an artistic and technological biosphere that is uniquely suited to this limitless engine for creativity. From creative programmers to animators to writers, composers and actors, multi-media cross disciplinary collaboration means that each individual practitioner has to look beyond the traditional confines of their own art to make a meaningful contribution to the whole.
