Founded in 2011, the Ludomusicology Research Group is an inter-university research organization dedicated to the study of game music.

The musicological approach of the group sets us apart from others that are more focused on non-performative visual arts, non-interactive film, or those that focus on sound in general, instead of music. Our aim is to promote academic collaboration, establish game music as a significant research area alongside academic musicology, act as a hub or point-of-contact to advertise the research of the group members (and of other academics working in the field) and serve as a general attempt to create a coherent direction and body of knowledge for this sub-discipline.

Taking place over two days at our Valletta campus, this conference will cover a range of topics including representations of the body through sound and music in games, performance of gender/sexuality and game sound, physical interactivity with music and games, dance and drama as lenses for conceptualizing game audio, voice and game sound, and game music and accessibility. The conference will feature Prof. Hillegonda Rietveld, Professor of Sonic Culture at London South Bank University, musician and electronic music specialist, co-editor of the special issue ‘Hear the Music, Play the Game’ for GAME as Keynote speaker and many more to be announced. There will also be plenty of opportunities to network and socialise with fellow attendees and enjoy the Mediterranean springtime sun.

More information about the conference and registration are available here.
