WHAT IS GAiN?

 

Game Audio in Norway (GAIN) is a members-only interest organization for sound and music for video-games and interactive media.

OUR MISSION

 

To be a source of information, network, representation and support for its members' creative work in the interactive media branch.

OUR HISTORY

 
 

Officially founded in April 21st, 2021, GAIN started as a small facebook group created by Martin Kvale, Bjarte Sebastian Hansen and Jory Prum in April 9th, 2013. Its intent was to connect game audio designers and developers in Norway and abroad in a casual way. The group was then named GAIN (Game Audio in Norway) in March 2019 and started developing into a more organized entity. After many conversations between members, Theo Nogueira and Alex Espeseth put together a proposal, which came to be what GAIN is today.
