INTRODUCTION The success of Norwich Sound & Vision has always been down to strong partnership working between organisations, and I must give huge thanks to the Norwich Sound & Vision partners, both new and old, who have worked with us to deliver a truly stunning programme.

We're very pleased and proud to be presenting the 4th annual edition of Norwich Sound & Vision. When we launched the very first NS&V back in 2010 the intention was always to create an event that embedded the ethos of the biggest event of this type in the world, sxsw in Austin. I think this year we've managed to do that by not only increasing the scale of the music festival, but also the conference side of things. We have a comprehensive conference programme taking place over the three days in three different venues. The programme features interactive panel discussions dealing with many hot topics within three distinct strands of the commercial creative industries: music, film & TV, and the digital and interactive industries.

This year we also have a precursor to Norwich Sound & Vision on Wednesday 9th October at Epic Studios - which is the first ever instalment of CIDFO - the Convergence International Digital Forum. This event will see a whole range of people with creative and digital ideas pitch to a panel of investors and commissioners - rather like a Dragons Den for the Creative Industries. Norwich Sound & Vision exists in order to have a strong, positive impact on the creative businesses and individuals based in this region. And also to raise the profile and cultural tourism of the city itself.

So with the addition of the new exciting aspects of this years Norwich Sound & Vision we're clearly going to see further growth in the event itself and also for the creative commercial industries in our region. Welcome to Norwich Sound & Vision 2013. Go and engage in as many of the events as you can and do please let us know how your own #NSV2013 experience was for you.

ADRIAN COOKE FESTIVAL DIRECTOR We feel that we have begun to make significant progress in delivering on those aims. Last year's event saw a footfall of 7000 over the three days. This included 700 full delegates who were here to attend the

conference, largely travelling from other parts of the country, and from overseas in many cases. This produced a visitor spend in the city of over £100,000 per day, which included £25,000 spent on hotels. There have also been many instances of individuals and enterprises who have won new business or found new opportunities, including the creation of new jobs - through engaging with Norwich Sound & Vision.

Terri Hooley is a radical, rebel and musiclover in 1970s Belfast when the bloody conflict known as the Troubles shuts down his city. As all his friends take sides and take up arms, Terri opens a record shop on the most bombed half-mile in Europe and calls it Good Vibrations. Through it he discovers a compelling voice of resistance in the city's nascent underground punk scenes. Galvanising the young musicians into action, he becomes the unlikely leader of a motley band of kids and punks who join him in his mission to create a new community, an alternative Ulster, to bring his city back to life. Much of the music is provided by bands released by the Good Vibrations label, such as The Undertones, The Outcasts and Rudi, as well as Stiff Little Fingers. Terri will be in attendance for a Q&A session after the film, chaired by punk music pundit John Robb.

MUSIC FOR ADVERTISING Licensing music to adverts continues to be a valuable source of income for artists, record labels and publishers. Our panel of experts take through the process of how music is selected and how to put yourself in contention.

Coalition (FAC), an organisation set up to give artists a voice in the fast changing music industry. PPL licenses recorded music played in public or broadcast on radio, TV and the internet, and then distributes the licence fees to its performer and rightholder members. Established in 1934, PPL exists to ensure that those who invest their time, talent and money to make recorded music are fairly paid for their work. PPL is free to join, and currently represents tens of thousands of performers and record companies, from major names to sole traders. PPL collects both domestic and international royalties and distributes these to its members.

POLYCOMICAL

FORCE OF HABIT

Based on the online comic Reynard City (www.reynardcity.com), Reynard City: The Video Game is a twist on the classic 2D side scroller. Think Samurai Pizza Cats meets Streets of Rage 2!

Toast Time is a throwback to the golden age of video games where old-school homebrew titles fused arcade action with a distinctly British sense of humour. An appetising arena shoot-em-up garnished with towerdefence elements and served warm with awesome-sauce (probably syrup).

FREEKSTORM

www.forceofhab.it

Doctor Kvorak is an atmospheric singleplayer 3D adventure puzzle game for PC, Mac and Console. The game is designed for all ages and also features a full map-editor and community map server. The game follows Greeboo’s brave and fearless quest to rescue his comrades and save his world from certain destruction. But all is not what it seems....just exactly who is Doctor Kvorak, and what does he really want?

OMNOMCOM Dot.Stop.Run is an auto running game, available on Android, iOS, Ouya + Desktop in October 2013. The player is a sentient pixel, "Dot", who must use her ability to alter the flow of time in order to solve puzzles, and save the simulation she resides in from total collapse.

www.dotstoprun.com

MIDNIGHT LAUNCH STUDIOS

We'll be running an interactive workshop to show a brief look into the work of 3D and Game Artists. We will be offering fun activities such as the chance to sit for a 'speed portrait', 3D modeling tutorials, advice for school-leavers, and more artrelated fun!

ALISTAIR AITCHESON Slamjet Stadium is the future's most popular and deadly sport - a supercharged version of soccer played on hoverbikes. It's fast-paced physics-based chaos where you're encouraged to get in your opponents' way and play dirty!

FORCE OF HABIT

Our main project, "The Only Certainty", is a top-down space exploration game currently in the form of an alpha demo. We will be talking about the game and how we started with no game development experience whatsoever!

EXOBYTE

2 PERSON GAMES

Exobyte will be demonstrating three Android mobile phone apps: Cherry Chaser and Super Snake are simulations of traditional "pub style" fruit machine games and both have proved popular around the world and particularly across Europe. Cherry Chaser Slot Machine recently surpassed a million downloads on Google Play. Both games have simple and addictive gameplay that keeps you coming back for more.

Space Salvager is a top down space shooter, where the player travels around the constellation of Nyr Heim, comprised of over eighty different sectors. Space is full of opportunity and death, more often than not both.

TRANSMEDIA DOCUMENTARY: THE NOTION OF LOCAL ENGAGEMENT IN MULTIPLATFORM CONTENT CREATION EVENT IS PRESENTED BY NORWICH UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS WITH CREATIVE SKILLSET

Storytelling has arguably been the sustenance of communities since time began. People would congregate around a campfire and add to what was being told and take elements away to share. Transmedia documentary is not a whole new world of storytelling but a discussion with an audience in a different way, taking advantage of the available technology and creating new dynamics in order that people can share their voices and the work they are creating. This symposium will consider: The recent growth in demand for, and the spotlight on, hyperlocal media. The increased engagement of users through connected devices. The increasing significance of transmedia documentary for ‘consumers’. And the notion of local engagement in multiplatform content creation.

STORYTELLING AND MEANINGFUL GAMEPLAY What constitutes “meaningful” gameplay? As games become ever more immersive, should developers take more careful consideration of the meaning of in-game actions and their consequences?

IMRE JELE: BOSSA STUDIOS AL SCARROW: AUTHOR

12.30PM – 1.30PM

PLAYER ENGAGEMENT How do you set an appropriate pace to maintain player engagement over the course of a game? From the moment the player chooses to start, how long does it take to get into the game? And how much longer before the player experiences a moment of real agency and engagement? Producer and game critic Cara Ellison examines these issues in this session.

THE MANIC SHINE / THE UNDIVIDED / THE THESPIANS / COMMON TONGUES / KEVIN PEARCE

THE MANIC SHINE: A rock band unlike any you will have ever heard. With a vast sound that links progressive alt/rock with atmospheric synth noise they combine incredible guitar solos, time signature changes and a heart-pounding groove to deliver an inebriating wall of metamorphic art rock. THE UNDIVIDED: Since their formation in 2009 they have been making waves across the South Wales music scene and beyond with their anthemic brand of indie rock.

FRENCH ACTS AT OPEN

WE WERE EVERGREEN / CHEVEU / BRNS / MESPARROW WE WERE EVERGREEN: French trio that fuses English folk, pop and disco and the storytelling traditions of their native France, with a kleptomaniacal approach to world music too.

JOHN LANGAN / BANDANTONIO LULIC / DAN WILDE / WOODLAND CREATURES JOHN LANGAN BAND: ‘Astonishing work, boundlessly inventive… driving rhythms and mesmerising folk melodies’– R2 MAGAZINE ANTONIO LULIC: This folk-rock singersongwriter possesses a deep and gravelly vocal that combines with a powerful yet intimate lyrical style to deliver passionate and uniquely soulful music.

CHEVEU: Proto-Punk surely and arty maybe (think Cabaret Voltaire or Suicide) but this Parisian trio’s new tracks will be stuck in your head for days. DAN WILDE: Cambridge based songwriter that will be performing his own brand of richly observant folk.

THE THESPIANS: 'The Thespians are the UK’s next massive garage rock band. The UK’s answer to The Strokes. They’re just f**kin cool'. – MICHAEL ANDERSON, S14G (MTV NEW YORK)

KEVIN PEARCE: ‘Pearce’s delivery, emotional yet mellow, will invite some obvious comparisons to Nick Drake, but it’s a comparison Pearce can bear, as the material here is of such quality’. – ACOUSTIC MAGAZINE

OLIVIER DONNET

COMMON TONGUES: Indie folk 5-piece band hailing from the shores of Brighton that combine their love of tender and emotive song writing with a passion for experimentation and atmospherics.

BRNS: From the medieval and postmodern corners of Brussels come BRNS, a mesmerizing experiment in dusk, dance, and the fullness of sound. Like the dark-yetvibrant images of Brussels artist Yardz or Carl Roosens, this quartet of talented multiinstrumentalists weaves together tunes that are mystical, moody and insatiably catchy.

MESPARROW: The ideal pseudonym for a singer from Tours called Marion Gaume who couldn’t wait to take flight. She does pop in the widest sense of the word. Modern music with roots reaching back to gospel, music hall and life well lived.
