Concept mixer for the Royal Society of Edinburgh

December 5th, 2011

One of the many “extras” this semester included the development of a concept mixer engine for the opening of the RSE’s (Royal Society of Edinburgh) launch of their Young Academy on the 29th November 2011. Keywords from the academics involved are mixed against sounds made by sound designers and images gathered from google images. Thanks to Matt Collings for generating this documentation of the project;

Hi, there I am Jogger from MSc Composition for Screen, and I am preparing our programme screening event on 25th in Atrium. My project is a little bit ambitious, since I need a xbox and a good Battlefield player to corporate with my adaptive music lively for the screening. In an other word, my music is not fixed, and will accompany with the video game accordingly. I have already finished all the music and the mission I composed for is this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VojzxXzA3N4&list=PLBF3CB8E174D3B1B4&index=6&feature=plpp_video If you 1, have a xbox 2, have the battle field 3 game disc 3, can play this mission in less that 30 minute! Please let me know and I will just use them on 25th of August~ joggerxiong@gmail.com Thank you very much! Best wishes, Jogger
