On December 7th, 2022, Interactive Ontario and Music Publishers Canada hosted the biggest Ontario video game, immersive/ interactive digital media, and music event of the year.
Hosted at the legendary El Mocambo, IO Connect: The Future of Video Game Audio & Holiday Celebration brought together nearly 400 people from across industries to participate in this inaugural collaboration between IO and MPC. The evening’s opening panel welcomed Darren Korb of Supergiant Games, Colin Walder of CD Projekt Red, Eduardo Vaisman of Ubisoft Toronto, Debbie Gonzalez of Keywords Studios and moderator Stephanie Greenall of Tilt 5 for an engaging and enticing discussion of video game audio. This was followed by the talented DJ Killa Jewel taking the stage, who performed the soundtrack of the night, incl. a compilation of music from Ontario video games, a proud moment for many of us.
