In this course students explore effective sound design techniques for adaptive audio. Games mix between linear and interactive playback as the player moves between sequences – known as “cutscenes” and game play. Students compose music, create sound design and dialog assets for implementation into the cutscenes and interactive portions of a game. Students work with audio as components for interactive playback and will explore various game engine sound implementation tools.
