Panel: Audio in Games and Interactive Media

May 27, 2021 1:00pm ‐ May 27, 2021 2:15pm


Audio in many forms is an important part of the interactive media like games: sound effects and music have a substantial effect on players' experience of games. In this proposed panel, several experts in industry and academia will hold a semi-structured chat. The panel members consist of several experts working in the industry with a background in music composition and sound effects design for games and other interactive media, and a game audio researcher with empirical work in game audio for PC and VR games. The questions will involve the process of audio design for games, how they design or compose for specific experiences and to minimize replay fatigue, how they communicate about the audio they're aiming for, how music can create or break immersion, what factors distract from game audio, and what makes audio in games particularly satisfying.
