We’re back again for VMDO Networking Breakfasts, where we host a monthly get-together for Victorian music industry professionals.
VMDO is excited to launch its new VMDO Games division this year at Melbourne International Games Week (October 5th – 13th). As part of our foray into the games world, we’ll be presenting events throughout the week aimed at fostering the growth of business relationships between the Victorian music sector and gaming industry.
On Tuesday 8th October, as part of MIGW, we will be joined by our special international guests, Mason Lieberman (Senior Game Audio Coordinator, Tencent) and Sebastian Wolff (CEO/founder, Materia Collective), as well as Jules Bain (Mushroom Publishing)

As a freelancer he’s most known for his work composing on series like Rooster Teeth’s RWBY and Beyblade Burst Evolution, amongst many others. As a cellist, guitarist, and vocalist, Mason has had the great pleasure of working with a wide variety of film and gaming franchises including The Rising of the Shield Hero, Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. franchise, Riot Games’ League of Legends, AMC’s The Walking Dead, Warhammer: Vermintide, Hell's Kitchen, and God Eater.
