Rocksteady Studios’ Composer/Audio director Nick Arundel and Hollywood film and video games conductor Allan Wilson revealed as special guests
As a Batman fan who loves the Arkham series, I’m very excited to hear from Rocksteady Studios’ resident ‘BATMAN‘ composer/audio director Nick Arundel (‘Batman: Arkham Knight’, ‘Batman: Arkham City’, ‘Batman: Arkham Asylum’).

“SCORE TO STUDIO 2”
Game Music Connect returns with both new and previous panel members featuring our previously mentioned special guest composer/audio director for the ‘BATMAN’ video games series, Nick Arundel – to discuss the complex commissioning and delivery process which lies behind orchestral video game music while employing a small army of executives, audio directors, talent agents, orchestral contractors, conductors, musicians, recording staff and implementers. “Score To Studio 2 seeks to pull the curtains back on how this extraordinary machine works, highlighting the specific challenges which video game projects present compared with other entertainment media.” This was a brilliant session last year and hopefully this year we’ll gain just as much if not more knowledge and insight.
