Saturday 30 September - Sunday 1 October in  Melbourne

In-person conference and live stream featuring top composers, sound artists and industry pros from games and music

Panels, demos, workshops, networking, legal advice, A&R and more tailored to music creators of all levels

High Score is where music creators, game developers and industry professionals connect and explore the important role that music and audio play in game design and experience.

Join us Saturday 30 September & Sunday 1 October at LCI Melbourne in Collingwood – or on the live stream. Tickets are on sale now!

Drawing on a theme of "Tools of the Trade", this year’s High Score is focused on building deeper relationships with existing tools, finding new skills and putting everything to the test creatively, technically and practically. Whether your craft is composition or songwriting, sound design or foley, audio engineering or technical implementation – High Score has something for you.

Returning as hosts are ABC’s Good Game Spawn Point and Double J radio presenter Angharad 'Rad' Yeo and ACMI curator and award-winning videogame journalist, Jini Maxwell.

Opening the conference will be the legendary composer, Yoko Shimomura (Kingdom Heart, Final Fantasy XV, Super Mario RPG, Street Fighter II), discussing her 30+ year experience with the medium of game audio and composition.

Australia’s own Christopher Larkin (Hollow Knight, TOHU, Outfolded) will close out the conference with his experiences creating and refining a distinctive sound and production approach.

Full program will be announced in the coming weeks!

Don’t miss the chance to network and connect, try out software and hardware or learn from local and international speakers on skill development, aesthetic design, and the structure of the ever-changing games industry.
