Making music supervision work

first_imgMaking music supervision workSponsored article: Keywords Studios continues ‘A series unlocking modern game development’. This week: Music Supervision by CORD CEO Daniel M JacksonSponsored articleMonday 25th March 2019Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareMusic is magic. It can also be murder. It is slippery and hard to define. It has immutable laws but it is ever-changing. It is incredibly easy to judge but ludicrously hard to master. Like trying to make a vase out of wet clay on a wonky potter’s wheel, choosing or creating the right music for a game requires an ability to hold on and to also know when to let go. It’s a job based on feel first, logic last and yet there are undeniable business issues involved for game developers; how much to spend on composition? How to arrange licences? What does value for money look (sound) like?Alongside voice and sound design, music exists as a core element of game audio. It provides emotional context for a game, helps the player navigate their world and it can even form core elements of the marketing or merchandising of a game. So getting it right is important and that is the job of the music supervisor. Here we take a look at music supervision in games and examine what it takes to be great.Be humbleMusic supervisors bring encyclopaedic music knowledge and should surprise and delight with their suggestions… but the creative vision for the game is usually the game director’s and they will have final say. So bring your A-game and your best tracks but be humble enough to listen to other opinions and recognise when they trump yours.Know the marketThere are ‘going rates’ for composition but they vary according to the composer’s skill and experience. There are no rules regarding rates for licensed music; quotes can vary wildly depending on who is asking, what exactly is asked and how the first enquiry is made. The music supervisor needs to back up their knowledge of great music (in all genres) with just as good an understanding of who owns what and how much to pay for licensed or composed music.Half the time, you’re a lawyerMusic is a legal minefield. Licensing and copyright ownership require paper-trails in order to avoid very costly unlicensed use lawsuits. Briefing and composing music requires in-depth understanding of music copyright in order to avoid even costlier plagiarism suits. Know the law and always get agreements in writing.Daniel M Jackson, CORD Worldwide CEOThink ahead but balance the booksThe longer the terms on licensed music, the better the deal. Similarly, the more uses that are licensed up front, the lower the chances of getting rinsed in six months time when you want to use a piece of music for a trailer or on a soundtrack release. That’s easy to understand but usually there are budget constraints that mean the full range and depth of rights can’t be licensed. So a great music supervisor will need to balance probabilities, license what’s important and put options in for uses that the game might want later but can’t afford now.Understand the technologyThe story of music is the story of technology. From banging a drum to the latest artificially intelligent music engines, every instrument and innovation creates a new sound. So staying in touch with tech is just as important as staying in the loop with the latest Icelandic folk-dance crossover. In games this is truly vital, as generative and non-linear music are in many cases the norm and these technologies can be hard to understand and even harder to implement.Related JobsSenior Game Designer – UE4 – AAA United Kingdom Amiqus GamesProgrammer – REMOTE – work with industry veterans!

The adage ‘I’ll know it when I hear it’ is either a source of immense frustration (in which case, don’t be a music supervisor) or a rallying cry to search for that elusive next track, loop or motif: the one that might finally be the answer that everyone involved can get behind. So don’t be afraid of always trying to improve on choices already made, of being open-minded, of searching for just one more song that might put the sprinkles on the cake.Daniel M Jackson is CEO of CORD Worldwide, a Keywords Studio, providing music services to games, brands and the global entertainment industry.For more information on Keywords Studios.

first_imgManchester United have been quiet in the transfer window so far but are hunting the market to ensure they kick on from their one win in nine games against Swansea last week.A forward is top of the list for Louis van Gaal, whose own future is still in doubt, as he looks to halt United’s stuttering season.The Red Devils have been boosted by the return of Adnan Januzaj from Borussia Dortmund after the Belgian failed to make a Bundesliga start in his four months in Germany.So who will United turn to in order to make sure they are one of the teams who fill the Champions League places come the end of the season?Click the arrow above, right, to look at a selection of the latest transfer rumours circulating Old Trafford. 6 6 Eden Hazard – Click the arrow, right, for more Manchester United transfer rumours – Manchester United will turn their attentions to signing Eden Hazard after learning they have no chance of landing either Cristiano Ronaldo or Gareth Bale. The Red Devils will battle it out with PSG and Bayern Munich after the £65m-rated Belgian decided he would leave Chelsea in the summer. United are reportedly preparing a £250,000-a-week contract. 6 Ilkay Gundogan – Click the arrow, right, for more Manchester United transfer rumours – Machester United’s attempts to sign long-term target Ilkay Gundogan have been boosted with news Juventus have pulled out of the race for the German.

Ander Herrera – After Manchester United made it clear Marouane Fellaini would not be leaving in January, Juventus have turned their attentions to Ander Herrera. The attacking midfielder has struggled to impress Louis van Gaal enough to consistently start and is reported to be available for as little as £22.3m, according to reports in Italy. 6last_img read more

FAA warns against counter-drone systems

first_imgThe US Federal Aviation Administration has warned airports against installing systems designed to disable a drone because of the potential risk to aircraft and air traffic control services.The US regulator is happy to help airports install detection systems but does not want them using technology designed to bring down drones.The statement is in response to increasing worries at airports and airlines about the impact of the growing number of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and incidents of illegal use near airports.The issue grabbed international headlines in late 2018 when Gatwick Airport was shut down by illegal drone activity during the busy pre-Christmas period.The airport was shut down over three days and the travel plans of 140,000 people were disrupted after reports of illegal drones.Since then there have been other reports globally of drones near aerodromes — Dubai airport was briefly closed in February because of a suspected sighting — and some airports and countries such as Australia have been trialing drone detection technology.A number of countries are also introducing rules that require users to register drones.READ: Aussie tets help FAA approval of US drone deliveries.The FAA said it understood and shared airport safety and security concerns raised by the malicious or errant use of drones.It said it was continuing to work closely with airport operators who were considering detection systems or had already done so.It had already provided important information and expected to supplement this “as we refine our processes and procedures for safe UAS detection system use and coordinated operational response at or around airports”.“The FAA also provided information regarding the prohibition on the use of non-federal counter-UAS technologies at or around airports,’’ it said.“These systems could pose an aviation safety risk by interfering with aircraft navigation and air navigation services.“The FAA does not support the use of counter-UAS systems by any entities other than federal departments with explicit statutory authority to use this technology, including requirements for extensive coordination with the FAA to ensure safety risks are mitigated.”last_img read more

Yang-Shi Lin, of Flushing, New York was sentenced to 12 months and one day in prison, followed by two years of supervised release. Mei Bao Lu, also of Flushing, was sentenced to 18 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release. Lu was the ringleader of a group of individuals from New York that engaged in counterfeit credit card transactions at retail stores along the East Coast. Lin was Lu’s second-in-command. As part of the scheme, Lu provided several individuals with counterfeit credit cards, which had been produced from credit card information skimmed from cardholders, and directed the buyers to purchase gift cards and luxury merchandise using the counterfeit cards. He then sold the items to other individuals at a discount to be fenced or sold on the black market. The group engaged in fraudulent credit card transactions at retail stores in Connecticut, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. In total, the group members collectively used 120 counterfeit credit cards, issued by 18 victim financial institutions, to make a total of approximately $179,000 in fraudulent purchases. Investigators discovered an additional 333 stolen card numbers on thumb drives belonging to Lu and Lin that had not been used at the time of their arrests. Lu was arrested in West Virginia, after he and three other individuals were caught buying gift cards and merchandise with counterfeit credit cards at a mall in Barboursville, West Virginia. Lu pleaded guilty to one count of access device fraud and aiding and abetting. Lin was arrested and pleaded guilty to the same charge. Lu and Lin, who are released on bond, were ordered to report to prison on March 7, 2018.  [Source: Banker & Tradesman]Crime shouldn’t pay, but requiring reimbursement may not pay offA law that takes effect next month in Michigan adds a handful of new crimes to the list of offenses for which violators must reimburse the state or a local unit of government for expenses incurred responding to and prosecuting the crime. Such crimes as drunk driving and violating a restraining order have carried this requirement and now retail fraud, dealing in stolen goods and failure to appear in court will, too. Sen. Goeff Hansen, R-Hart, the bill’s sponsor, issued a press release that said the law was created in response to rising rates of retail fraud at The Lakes Mall in Muskegon. It said also, “This law is a further deterrent to crime and will save money by reducing costs to the state and to local units of government.” Requiring people who commit crimes of theft to make their victims whole makes sense. But allowing government agencies to recoup their costs from criminal defendants is a bad idea, and it might not even accomplish Hansen’s goal of deterring crime. Although criminology is an imprecise science, the findings tend to conclude that the probability of getting caught is a better deterrent than the threat of a more severe punishment. This is one reason why the modern criminal justice reform movement has urged lawmakers to move away from “tough on crime” policies like mandatory minimum sentences.- Sponsor – And anecdotes seem to support the research: In Michigan, the prison population appears to fluctuate independently of the crime rate, suggesting that imposing long sentences didn’t have the desired effect on crime. Now prisons are full of people serving long sentences, and although crime is steadily decreasing, Michigan corrections spending has plateaued at about $2 billion. In keeping with research on the best deterrents, one clearly effective solution is increasing police presence in high-crime areas — not to pursue an aggressive, high-arrest crackdown on “bad” neighborhoods, but to discourage the kind of criminality that would necessitate arrests in the first place. Policymakers should reconsider the idea of sticking criminal offenders with the bill for the costs associated with their arrest, trial and incarceration. For one thing, it creates perverse incentives for law enforcement officers when they know that when they arrest someone for certain types of crimes, they generate revenue for their employer. And these types of administrative expenses disproportionately effect low-income offenders, making their full rehabilitation and a successful reintegration into society more difficult.  [Source: Mackinac Center]Four men accused of $80K cargo theftIn New Jerse, four men, from Middlesex, Somerset and Union counties — have been arrested and others are being sought in connection with the theft of about $80,000 worth of cargo from a North Union Avenue beverage packing company. Hillside Police Chief Vincent Ricciardi said Wilfredo Bobadilla, 45, of New Brunswick, Arturo Sanchez, 45, of the Somerset section of Franklin, Elijah Jacobs, 38, of New Brunswick, and Gerard Perkins, 42, of Rahway, were charged with theft of movable property, a second-degree crime.According to Ricciardi, about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, near the exit of the Union Beverage parking lot on North Union Avenue, officers stopped Sanchez with cardboard covering the license plate of a white 2004 Freightliner tractor-tractor he was driving.  Police said Bobadilla was in the passenger seat. A preliminary investigation indicated that the trailer contained about $80,000 worth of cargo stolen from Union Beverage, police said. Jacobs, a Union Beverage supervisor, was determined to be involved in the theft, police said. Police said Perkins, a Union Beverage forklift operator, fled or was hiding. Police said he was quickly located and arrested. The investigation is continuing with the possibility of more arrests, police said. “Due to the diligence and professionalism of our officers and detectives a major theft of property from a Hillside business has been thwarted. I’m exceptionally proud of them,” Ricciardi said.  [Source: MyCentralJersey]Employee suspected of stealing $6,000 from storeOcala, Florida, police on Wednesday arrested a Kmart employee suspected of stealing thousands of dollars from the store. Amber Martin, 39, of Ocala, told a police officer she took the cash because she is a single mother trying to take care of her daughter, according to an Ocala Police Department arrest report. After the interview, she was arrested on grand theft and taken to the Marion County Jail. She was released at 2:27 a.m. Thursday on $5,000 bond. Martin was an associate working in the money room at the Kmart at 3711 E. Silver Springs Blvd, according to the report. A Kmart loss prevention associate had told the police officer that Martin took $6,000 from the store and that the theft had been going on since July. The Kmart official said he recovered $70 from Martin.   [Source: Ocala StarBanner]Georgia woman faces 20 years for $1.1M national casino fraud schemeAn Alpharetta, Georgia, woman pleaded guilty on Wednesday to charges related to a nationwide casino and credit card scheme. Vivian Wang, 54, pleaded guilty to wire fraud and aggravated identity theft, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of California announced. Wang faces two to 20 years in prison and up to $500,000 in fines. Her case was the product of a joint investigation by the FBI and California’s Bureau of Gambling Control. LexisNexis, an online public records and research system, flags Wang’s social security number as being linked to multiple people. According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, between 2008 and 2014, Wang and a co-defendant — Frank Luo, 49, of Las Vegas — participated in a scheme to defraud casinos and credit card companies across the country. The scheme involved using the names and social security numbers of migrant workers to apply for casino credit and to open credit card accounts. Casino credit — also called a “marker” — is a cash advance provided by a casino to a patron, and it is often secured by a check from the patron’s bank account, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.Initially, Wang and Luo paid off several of these “markers” on time to give the impression of “credit worthiness” to casinos and credit card companies, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. But then Wang and Luo recruited “clients” to participate in the scheme to induce the casinos and credit card companies to part with even more money under fraudulent pretenses. Wang and others working with her coordinated their gambling activity to give the appearance of losing money, which encouraged the casinos to issue future “markers,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. The investigation found that one schemer would “lose” money while another would gain the same. In other instances, one schemer would secretly deliver the issued gambling chips to another to give the appearance of having spent them, the investigation found. Wang and her co-schemers did not repay the casino markers or the outstanding credit card balances accrued. The U.S. Attorney’s Office said the fraud led to more than $1.1 million in losses to casinos and credit card companies.  [Source: Atlanta Journal Constitution] Stay UpdatedGet critical information for loss prevention professionals, security and retail management delivered right to your inbox.  Sign up nowlast_img read more

Rajon Rondo on His Return Ill Know When Its

Boston Celtics’s Rajon Rondo’s 2013 NBA season ended after he partially tore his ACL. The point guard has been going through treatment since then, and was recently fitted for his first knee brace. Though he is hopeful, Rondo remains cautious about returning to physical play.“I don’t think contact will be too far from there.” Rondo told ESPN.“I hope I can play against the Raptors [on opening night next week], but that’s not likely. I’m taking it one week at a time. I know it’s getting stronger each week and whenever I’m able to jump off my right leg and probably dunk, that’s when I think I’ll be back to play.”Rondo made it clear that until he is ready he will not return.“I’ll know when it’s right,” he said. “Everybody is different, each injury is different… For me, when I come back, I won’t come back unless I know I’m myself again.”Rondo was asked about Gerald Wallace’s comments questioning the team’s effort.“Everybody has their opinion,” said Rondo. “I don’t think Gerald is wrong to speak his opinion or speak his mind. I think a lot of what he was talking about is that you gotta play for one another. And maybe nights that you don’t have your game going, offensively, you still have to get down and communicate on defense, help the next man and just play hard for the next guy. It may not be your night, and some nights it is going to be your night. But at the end of the day it’s all about the name on the front of the jersey… All that matters is the wins and losses, not your individual stats. If we can continue to think like that, we’ll be fine.”Rondo also talked about new head coach Brad Stevens and the team’s offensive approach.“Brad is not really strict, he lets you go out there and play the game,” he said. “He just wants you to play each possession extremely hard. I think that’s the way I approach the game and, offensively, he designed an offense that we can pretty much flow into things as far as pick-and-rolls, getting the ball into the post… that’s just how he coaches the game. I’m just trying to get back in, go out there, and do what I do best: Lot of pick-and-rolls, get into the paint, make my teammates better, make their jobs a lot easier when I come back.” read more
