Imagine you're taking part in a game jam. You want your game to have sounds, but the time is limited, you have plenty of other things to do, and the player probably won't notice. And you are wrong ! You don't need that much time to make a soundtrack and a couple of sound effects, and even if, after the brainstorming, you have no idea about what your game will feel like, it's something you can do at the beginning of the process. And there's a great possibility this will improve the player experience.

During this workshop, I'll give you some advises about what to do or no do when you're making music for a game jam game, and also some clue to make sound effects. After that you'll have some time to make a quick soundtrack for an imaginary game, and I will help you making it.

Intended audience: 
Anybody who already have some basics about making music and are willing to make soundtracks for games.

You already know some of the basics of making music, and you want to know how you can apply these basics in soundtracks and sound effects. It doesn't matter if you have never made a finished track, what matters is that you know how to write little melodies with your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), tracker or whatever you are familiar to.

Tools participants should bring:

• A computer with your favorite DAW or tracker, or anything you can use to make and record music (i.e.: game boy, OP-1, anything)
• Headphones ! (your classmates will thank you)
