As if ruining childhoods on the internet wasn't enough, YouTube video game guitarist FamilyJules7x is coming to MAGFest to string music from your favorite video games together into massive and aggressive metal guitar medleys.
Having done guitar work on games like the original Binding of Isaac and doing full arrangement albums for VVVVVV and Crypt of the Necrodancer, Jules will bring some of the new, some of the old, some of the well known, and some of the indie games to the stage in his arrangements.
Having performed at other big conventions like Pax and Magfest, it's time to bring the music to TwitchCon! Join in for two fun and interactive shows featuring The Guitar Brothers and FamilyJules7x as they play a selection of music from their vast archive of video games. This includes medleys from games like Goldeneye, Pokemon, Elder Scrolls and more as well as the music arranged by FamilyJules7x that can be heard in The Crypt of the Necrodancer.
The world would be a blander place without music, and that includes your favorite video games, and Twitch! Join notable musicians and streamers who have made names for themselves, thanks to your favorite streaming platform. Learn the ropes of writing, performing, and selling music in an increasingly digital world, and the role that Twitch is playing in the evolution of the industry. Join a discussion that reflects on some of the obstacles and possible solutions, as well as triumphs, of the DIY online music industry and how Twitch is helping it move forward. Whether you are a streamer looking for music to use in your channel, a musician wanting some insight for your own channel, or just someone who just generally loves music and video games, this panel has something for you!
Initially serving as the backdrop for 8-bit adventures, music in gaming has since evolved into a thriving industry and sub-culture. Join several YouTube musicians and music professionals with a passion for VGM as they discuss their involvement in the VGM community, their creative process, and the career opportunities available to musicians and music lovers alike.
