CJS Noon Lecture Series | An Exploration of Japanese Game Audio
Matthew Thompson, DMA — collaborative piano, is Assistant Professor of Music at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance. As a pianist, Thompson has performed with operatic celebrities like Thomas Hampson, Golden Mask winner Vince Yi, and musical theatre gurus like Tony Award winner, Gavin Creel. Equally comfortable collaborating with instrumentalists, Thompson’s most recent recording project, Japonica, is comprised of Japanese composed oboe/piano duos with recent U-M alumnus, Dr. Alex Hayashi. Thompson’s research interests in game audio pedagogy have garnered international attention; he presents regularly nationally and serves on the advisory board for GameSoundCon and a committee member for the North American Conference on Video Game Music.
