Assistant Professor of Music Production & Recording Technology Graham Spice, M.S., presented an Interactive Music Workshop on Friday, Dec. 3, in the Mac Lab (Ruebush Hall, Room 111). The event explored how interactive music works, especially as it relates to video games. It also examined how middleware software like Wwise can be used between a digital audio workstation (DAW) and a game engine (like Unity or Unreal) to control the music.
This workshop was presented in anticipation of the annual Global Game Jam (GGJ) at Shenandoah University, a weekend where students and faculty learn about and build games together. This year’s GGJ will take place Friday, Jan. 28, through Sunday, Jan. 30, and is sponsored by multiple Shenandoah University programs, including music production & recording technology (MPRT), recording & audio arts, virtual reality design, esports and computer science.
Spice is both an Ableton Certified Trainer and a Wwise Certified Instructor.
