Brian Trifon and Brian Lee White accepted the offer to be this year’s keynote speakers with delight. “We are thrilled to finally be back in-person at this year's GSC. Some of our most meaningful industry and personal connections have been made during GameSoundCon and the convention has always been a highlight of our year. It's truly an honor to be delivering this year's keynote and we are excited to reconnect with old friends, meet new ones and continue to expand our craft with the amazing game audio community.”

GameSoundCon 2022 offers a packed program with sessions covering sound design and technology, music composition for games, game audio studies, dialogue & performance, and spatial audio. Epic-Unreal workshops teach attendees all about MetaSounds and the latest updates in the UE audio engine. Audiokinetic represents with many sessions and workshops about Wwise, from 3D Audio Implementation with Wwise, to Interactive Music Structures and Strategies. Some topical new additions this year include Writing Japanese Video Game Music and Working with Vocalists in an Unfamiliar Language and more.

Conference Founder and Executive Director, Brian Schmidt says: “We’ve got a great program again this year! There are more than 70 sessions, accessible both in person and online, and the subjects are super compelling: case studies, hands-on workshops for Wwise and Unreal, how to compose for specific scenarios, how to compose interactive music, how to produce a motion capture shoot, how to make audio decisions for retro revivals, how to navigate the changing landscape of Spatial Audio, and much more. I’m confident both new and returning attendees will walk away with newfound knowledge that is very applicable to their craft and in their jobs.”
