Call for Projects: Swiss Games 14/15
Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia and FONDATION SUISA have joined forces to launch the «Call for Projects: Swiss Games» initiative, which is designed to promote the creation of Swiss video games to a high artistic standard.
With this prize, worth CHF 15.000, FONDATION SUISA honours the best original sound composition for a game project.
The prize for the best original sound composition awarded by FONDATION SUISA and worth CHF 15.000, went to Michel Barengo for his music for the game «Schlicht».
On Friday, 23 January 2016, the projects funded in the third Call for Projects: Swiss Games 14/15 were honoured as part of the Ludicious - Zürich Game Festival.
The jury is honouring the compositorial quality of the music created by Michel Barengo as well as its function in the game. As the game gets more complex, the music concentrates as well and follows the evolution of the complexity. The music supports the gaming experience and is clearly related to the German meaning of its title, «Schlicht» meaning «plain».
