Next week, connoisseurs of the joystick will gather in Youngstown for the county's first conference dedicated to the music of video games. This is a big deal: Professionals from around the globe will be coming to Northeast Ohio to opine on the industry.

Here's some context from the Youngstown Vindicator:

“The study of video-game music is quickly emerging as a legitimate academic discipline,” said Steven Reale, assistant professor in YSU’s Dana School of Music and the lead organizer of the event. “This conference will focus on how soundtracks for various video games serve to heighten the game’s story, amplify its interactivity, position it culturally or serve as touchstones for music pedagogy.”

More information, including registration details, is available at YSU's website.
