North American Conference on Video Game Music
The NACVGM conference committee is excited to announce a video game music concert in conjunction with the NACVGM 7 conference. The concert will take place after presentations and the dinner on Saturday of the conference, April 4th, 2020 at 8:15 pm in Ford Hall at Ithaca College.
We are soliciting proposals for 5-7-minute performances of game audio at NACVGM 7. The ~60 minutes concert will be free and open to the public and will not be streamed or recorded. There will be no full dress rehearsal for the concert. Instead, a technical walkthrough will begin after 5 pm the day of the concert to test connections and discuss setup. It may be possible to test the hall/piano in the early morning as well; further details will be released as the event approaches. There will be stage support to assist in setting and clearing the stage.
In your application, indicate minimum requirements for your performance (for instance, 3 chairs, 3 music stands, and a piano) and the members of your group. The following basics are available: piano, music stands, chairs, projection (with or without sound), microphones, and the ability to hook up speakers/amps. Also indicate anything necessary for your performance that is not on this list.
We aim to program a diverse concert of musical styles relating to video game audio. The music may be inspired by video games or game audio, or a direct/close recreation from music within a game.
Interested performers should send an email with a subject line of “NACVGM concert” to email@example.com by December 15, 2019 containing the following information:
