Session Name: Adaptive Music: The Secret Lies Within Music Itself
Speaker(s): Clint Bajakian
Company Name(s): Sony Computer Entertainment Amer
Track / Format: Audio
Overview: Adaptive music is often discussed in terms of how it is accomplished using adaptive authoring tools, scripting and audio technology. This is helpful, but comparatively little has been discussed about music itself and how its structure can be leveraged to yield best practices in adaptive music authoring. In this lecture, music will be examined for its textural components, such as melody, harmony, rhythm and form, to expose how these elements can be manipulated to optimize musical integrity in adaptive soundtracks.
