On Saturday the 5th March, the GMF 2022 educational programme will host masterclass workshops and other sessions, where participants will be able to see behind the scenes learning how audio is created for games, improve their skills and learn many tips and tricks from sound designers and the composers themselves.

"The Jazz of Cuphead" will start the performances with music from the unmistakeably stylish title interpreted by a seasoned big band. Full of the early styles of jazz mixed with ragtime music, Cuphead swiftly transports the listener to a world inspired by Duke Ellington and Count Basie, but always with a twist. Cuphead has won a well-deserved BAFTA Games Award for Best Music with composer  Kristofer Maddigan joining the audience to see his score brought to life by the Bartosz Pernal Orchestra.

Lauded by critics and millions of fans worldwide upon release, Ori and the Will of the Wisps features an unforgettable score by multi-BAFTA nominated and Ivor Novello winning composer, Gareth Coker. Entitled "The Symphony Of The Spirits" and performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra and Hertfordshire Chorus who recorded the game soundtrack originally, the second concert of the day will take the audience on a journey through Ori's world as never before.
