EMC 2019 JUST GOT BIGGER
New sessions and speakers for EMC 2019: THE NEXT NOW
Today we announce a host of new sessions and speakers for EMC 2019 as we delve into THE NEXT NOW.
We meet the team behind one of the most enigmatic artists and songwriters of the past 3 years, Running Touch plus we’ll get practical advice for how to identify key symptoms of common mental health issues with Support Act. We go deep into the fundamentals of Sound Design in Gaming, ask the question Is there a sustainable future for Electronic Music? in a UTS x EMC joint panel and much, much more!
On The Couch With Team Running Touch
Meet the Team: Running Touch is a close look into the journey of Running Touch and his team, exploring the triumphs and challenges since his 2016 breakout, and what 2020 and beyond looks like for one of Australia’s most exciting talents.
Is there a sustainable future for Electronic Music?
In a special UTS Music + Sound Design X EMC collaborative session our panel will address diverse issues and perspectives around sustainability and electronic music. Considering the conference theme of “the next now” our panellists consider the ironies and imperatives of sustainability thinking that will shape the opportunities, needs and challenges of the new decade ahead.
Game On! Fundamentals of Game Sound Production with Jared Underwood
Game music has a quintessential relationship with electronic sound production, but many producers don’t know how to approach making these kinds of arrangements or how to enter the niche yet expansive world of gaming music composition and production.
Mental Health Matters: with Support Act
Maintaining good mental health is a critical part of every artist and music worker’s overall health and well-being. Support Act presents this workshop to help the electronic music community to identify the signs and symptoms of common mental health issues. Learn how these can be managed, how you can introduce a conversation about mental health with your friends and colleagues, and how to ensure your own self-care.
Plus more soon to be announced.
