University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Extension is offering a nine-week course in composing music for videogames starting March 31, 2007. Lennie Moore, who over the last 20 years has composed music on 5 videogames, 10 feature films, and orchestrated on 30 feature films/television movies and over 120 commercials, will teach the course. This class is designed for composers interested in exploring the challenges of creating music for videogames. The curriculum presents a basic overview of the composition techniques, organization, and delivery formats that are unique to the videogame industry, along with lectures, audio/visual demonstrations, and guest speakers. Students will be shown some of the latest audio hardware and software technology for the creation and processing of audio assets. Students will be given composition assignments where they can test their skill in creating adaptive music. The goal of the course is to provide each student with a basic understanding of the distinctive qualities required to compose music for videogames, and to give them hands-on experience creating content for this medium.
