Austin Wintory – Speaks on Video Games

Scott Speck & Austin Wintory Discuss Video Game Music at Mobile Museum of Art

Video game music is one of the most exciting areas of music composition today, and Austin Wintory is a leader in the field. Assassin Dances, drawn from the score he created for the popular video game Assassin’s Creed will be featured on our January program. Wintory will be in Mobile for a week-long composer-in-residence program before the concert. Wintory’s game scores include his Grammy-nominated score for Journey, performed here last season. You can learn more about Wintory and about modern composing when he and Scott Speck lead a discussion on writing for the video gaming industry, Wednesday, Jan. 25, 6 p.m., at the Mobile Museum of Art.
“In looking for a composer-in-residence, I wanted someone who could reach the widest possible audience,” Speck says. “Today’s video game music echoes the music of the great film composers and speaks across the generations. I see Austin helping the Mobile Symphony to win many new friends of all ages.”
