Thank you very much for your patience while we have been organizing alternative plans for Ludo2020. We now have some news to share.
Rather than a full conference at once, we are pleased to announce a short series of Ludo sessions at weekly intervals, on Saturdays. They will be streamed for free online using Microsoft Teams; no account is necessary, just sign up with your name and email address using the form below and you will be emailed a link to the live stream shortly before each session.
We hope this will give you more flexibility for timing and preparation, as well as being an easier time commitment, and, perhaps, something fun and exciting for a few weeks through these difficult times.
We will have up to three papers per session, with presentations pre-recorded ahead of a live Q&A with the presenter.
Stephen Tatlow – Speak of the Devil: Player Voice in Video Game Marketing
Ariel Huang – Characterizing Generative Inscription from a Ludomusicological Perspective
Anselm Weber – Alien Buster: A 3D Audio Game
Costantino Oliva – Identifying Musical Situations in Digital Games
John Vinzant – Sed Non Eodem Modo: Comparing Ludomusicology to Ninteenth-Century Musikwissenschaft
Michael Austin – Beeps, Boops and Boyz: Sonic Representations of Gay Men in Video Games
Aaron Price – From Grinding to Grooving: An Investigation of Motoi Sakuraba’s RPG Combat Music
Andra Ivanescu – Transmedia Storytelling, Marketing and the Live Performance of Riot Games Music
The timings are all 4–6pm, Central European Time.
We hope you can join us!
