Abstract

Video games are fast becoming a new contender in modern media studies. In part because it is such a young discipline, there is little analysis of video games as an art form, particularly within the realm of music. Music plays a key signifying role within games and enhances the interactive experience for the gamer. Using modes of analysis developed for film music and opera, this project analyzes different music styles within video games and its connections to gameplay and artistic expression.
