Music Design for Games

Course Description:
Music is the cornerstone of the gaming experience. From the stirring orchestras of RPGs to the thrills of horror and the fun tones of that addictive puzzle, no game is truly complete without a soundtrack. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to compose non-linear music to bring life to different aspects of games. Explore how tracks and scores are integrated into games using Elias and the Unity Engine. Finally, discover how your works can be brought to the market and commercialised.

Key Takeaways:
This course aims to give music composers a jumpstart into the world of game sound design. Learners will explore the unique principles and mechanics of gameplay and how that influences the types of sound assets needed in creating an engaging game. By the end of this course, learners will be able to:

  • Describe the characteristics of music composition for games
  • Design and select music to fit different game situations and environments
  • Collaborate to integrate sound assets into the game
