In 2012, Austin Wintory’s renowned score for Journey changed how we think about video game music. Now a decade later for the game’s 10th anniversary, Austin revisits his seminal work and the enduring legacy of the little indie video game that shook up the titans of both the video game and music industries. Join Austin for an educational and entertaining ‘Journey’ down memory game lane.
Austin Wintory is a Grammy-nominated and two-time BAFTA-winning composer who has had a career straddling film, video games, and the stage. He has scored over 50 features, including several Sundance hits (Grace, Captain Abu Raed), and over 30 games, netting him 7 BAFTA nominations, 2 wins of the peer-voted ASCAP Composer’s Choice Awards, and a slew of other industry accolades.
His work, ranging from intimate indies like Journey to massive blockbusters like Assassin’s Creed is often noted for its unique perspective and unusual approach. Many of his game scores have enjoyed success in concert upon release, with performances all over the world including a recent presentation of his music before an audience of nearly 15,000 in Krakow, Poland. Austin’s most recent feature films include Bullet Head starring Adrien Brody and John Malkovich, and Burt Reynolds’ final film, The Last Movie Star.
