Join us for an intimate evening of music and lively discussion focussed on Ireland’s evolving Video Game Industry, live music from a string quartet and a video presentation of examples of Ireland’s current and future games!
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.
Ireland, has produced more than its fair share of fine storytellers, poets, playwrights and musicians. The birthplace of James Joyce, Oscar Wilde and Bernard Shaw, to name just a few, the island is legend for producing raconteurs. And what are video games if not stories, told in three dimensions? It’s only natural that Ireland’s creative artists, including Eimear, would be attracted to this new method for telling stories.
Named “The Irish Queen of Games Music” by The Irish Independent, Eímear Noone is arguably the world’s premier conductor of video game scores both in the studio and in the concert hall. On August 17th, 2019, come join Eimear as she hosts an evening of video game music and lively discussion of both her own video game music career as well as the current state of the Irish video game industry.
Immediately following her discussion, these game scores will be performed in string quartet:
- Baba Yetu – from Civilization IV, by Christopher Tin
- Malach, Angel Messenger – from World of WarCraft, Warlords of Draenor, by Eimear Noone
- The Legend of Zelda Medley – from the Zelda Franchise, by Koji Kondo
- AC/DC’s Back in Black (Eimear’s personal theme song) which also appeared in Call of Duty Black Ops II, by Angus and Malcolm Young and Brian Johnson, as imagined by Craig Stuart Garfinkle.
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. Join us in Gallery 2 for a video presentation of what’s happening in the exciting Irish Video Game Industry.
