BMI AND WHITE BEAR PR TO PRESENT “GAME ON! MUSIC & SOUND IN VIDEO GAMES” PANEL AT WONDERCON
BMI AND WHITE BEAR PR TO PRESENT GAME ON! MUSIC & SOUND IN VIDEO GAMES PANEL DISCUSSION AT WONDERCON
Before I tell you about the panel that BMI and White Bear PR will be presenting at WonderCon this weekend let me tell you this. I have seen the panels these two bring to San Diego Comic Con and to WonderCon for the past few years and they are never dull. The panelists are always interesting, talented and entertaining. And to learn about what inspires them, their techniques or their backgrounds is something that few of us would otherwise have the opportunity to experience. Do I recommend the panel brought by BMI and White Bear PR? Unequivably YES! I can’t even think of what could cause me to miss their panel (seriously can’t because I have no intention of missing it!)
Now onto the information about the Game On! Music & Sound in Video Games panel at this weekend’s WonderCon.
Broadcast Music, Inc.® (BMI®), a global leader in music rights management, along with White Bear PR, proudly return to WonderCon to present the Game On! Music & Sound in Video Games panel discussion.

WonderCon, one of the country’s best comics and popular arts conventions, is part of Comic-Con International (CCI), a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to creating awareness of, and appreciation for, comics and related popular art forms. The organization achieves its mission primarily through the presentation of conventions and events that celebrate the historic and ongoing contribution of comics to art and culture. In addition to WonderCon each spring, CCI organizes San Diego Comic-Con each summer (the world’s largest comics convention of its kind) and San Francisco’s Alternative Press Expo (APE) each fall.
