Comic Con Schedule 2010

It’s that time of year again!  Comic Con is finally upon us.  After the intense Music of Battlestar Galactica concerts at the House of Blues last year, I’m perfectly content just to roam the convention and take it easy this year.  So, if you see a dude walking around with dark hair and a goatee, it’s either me… or maybe Ron Moore.  :)

However, I will be making a few appearances, including two panels and a CD signing.  So, track me down and say hi, especially if you’re a frequent blog follower.

Thursday July 22

SOCOM 4

At the SONY booth on the convention floor, look for the kiosk featuring SOCOM 4.  You can play through the first level of the game, and get a first-listen to my gamelan / orchestral hybrid score.

DARK VOID

I will be doing a webcast interview with CAPCOM, discussing all things Dark Void, Dark Void Zero and why my hard-drives are labelled with Mega Man characters.  You can submit interview questions over at Capcom-Unity.com.

MYSTERY PROJECT??

There’s another new project I’m working on that is presenting a panel at Comic Con.  This panel may (or may not) announce my involvement at the screening.  In the meantime, I can only tease you guys with the knowledge that I’ll be lurking around during the screening, just to watch audience reaction while the footage plays.  But rest assured, this project is frakkin’ amazing and you’re all in for a real treat when it’s finally released.

See you in San Diego!
