In the past, the video game industry was a mostly male market, but today the conversation is different. The number of female gamers is increasingly approaching males and, as such, in this panel the stage belongs to women. Our guests, in addition to gamers, also work in the video game industry. We will have an animated conversation with Ana Costa, producer of digital content in the gaming area; Marta Casaca, host of Modo Playstation; and Vanessa Vieira Dias, who created the female community in "Videogame, Said She". Moderation will be in charge of Núrya Inocentes, resident commentator of Advnce Sic's Retrogamers program.
Just like graphics, mechanics and design, music in videogames has also evolved side by side with technology.
Simple chiptunes sounds from the consoles, and computers of the past, gave way to orchestrations that we hear in video games today. The new production and musical composition tools have given independent composers the opportunity to stand out and present their work.
To tell us about their journey and experiences with music in video games, we have 4 gamer composers: Nelson Milheiro, game designer and video game composer who has the game Xisto in his curriculum; Ricardo Vieira, a longtime composer who started composing on trackers and software on the Commodore Amiga; Beatriz Avelino is a singer, pianist and composer in musical projects, with a master's degree in Game Design and Playful Media and passionate about the arts.
