Overview

Game music has always been just as important as visuals to the gaming industry and culture. Entirely new products, services, and careers developed as businesses continued to chase, and in some cases create, market demand for video game music.

FutureLearn's Video Game Design and Development: A Bit-by-Bit History of Video Game Music was developed by Abertay University, a global leader in computer games education in Dundee, Scotland. The course is instructed by Kenny McAlpine, a musician and author who has taught on sound and music for games at Abertay University.

McAlpine traces the history of video game music, from early arcade games to the complex gaming ecosystem we now have. By drawing on technology, musicology, cultural studies, and expert opinions, McAlpine explores the development of gaming music.

Favorite Quote

"The story of video game music is an unusual one. Stylistically it's diverse ... And yet, game music still has a characteristic sound that derives in large part from the processes and techniques, the algorithms, that are used to create it."
