See Untitled Goose Game live in Naarm (Melbourne) next week

Posted on July 1, 2022

The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI), House House, and Orchestra Victoria are coming together to perform the iconic music from Untitled Goose Game, live and in-person. Untitled Goose Game Live takes place at ACMI in Naarm (Melbourne, Australia) on Friday 8 and Saturday 9 July 2022.

The event will have everyone’s favourite goose projected onto ACMI’s cinema screen, alongside a live accompaniment by musicians from Orchestra Victoria. Be entertained as our beloved goose creates chaos throughout the game, escorted by a live arrangement of Dan Golding’s soundtrack created exclusively for this event.

The performance will feature works by classical French composer Claude Debussy. During the performance, the musicians will react live to the actions of the player, making for a one-of-a-kind experience for fans of the hit video game.

ACMI is Australia’s national museum of screen culture. The museum reopened in February 2021 after a two-year, $40 million redevelopment – an architectural, programmatic and technological transformation. It is home to one of our favourite video game exhibitions, walking visitors through the history of our favourite pastime. Last year, it held the Cuphead museum exhibit in motion with handmade figures in a zoetrope.

ACMI Acting Director and CEO Graham Jephcott said, “we’re so excited that adults and children alike will be able to experience this trailblazing performance.”

“To bring House House’s iconic Melbourne-made videogame to our cinema screens with a live music accompaniment will be an unmissable experience for fans of this game.”

Associate Professor Dan Golding is deputy chair of media and communications at Swinburne University of Technology and the host of Screen Sounds on ABC Classic. Dan’s composing includes the soundtracks for Push Me Pull You (2016) and the Frog Detective series, both Australian-made indie games. Dan’s score for The Haunted Island (2018) won the APRA-AMCOS Australian Game Developer award for Best Music. His score for Untitled Goose Game is a “dynamic composition” that aims to feel like an orchestra playing alongside you.

“When we created the music for Untitled Goose Game, we created a system to simulate what it would be like to have a live musician sitting by the side of the player, providing a live soundtrack. Now, with Orchestra Victoria and ACMI, we no longer have to simulate it – we have the real thing. I’m incredibly excited to see this world-first performance in Melbourne.”
