Firefighting museum to unveil child-oriented exhibit


Watt will discuss his work in television, film, broadcasting and digital games. This event is free and open to the public.

A professor at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Watt worked on more than 70 album projects before founding Fastestmanintheworld Media in 2005. His work appears in a wide variety of digital game projects, including “Bioshock Infinite,” “League Of Legends,” “Need For Speed Undercover,” “Stargate,” and “Brothers In Arms: Hell’s Highway.” He is also the voice of Rammus and Blitzcrank from “League of Legends.”

His music is featured in 2013’s summer blockbuster “Now You See Me” and appears in a number of popular TV shows, including “The Good Wife,” “NCIS,” “Any Day Now,” as well as in My Little Pony and Transformers toys and apps.

Watt will explore the nature of writing for today’s games, the differences between writing non-linear game scores and traditional linear film scores, and the behind-the-scenes techniques composers use to deliver music in games. He will show QuickTime videos to demonstrate examples of game scores throughout the years. A question and answer session will follow.
