15620 : Japanese Animation: The Making of a Global Media

Description: percussive clicks of keyboards and controllers to menu noises, sound is tightly tied to the experience of playing video games. In this course, we’ll explore how game music and sound interact with narrative, the embodiment of play, and musical environments outside of the games themselves. Our engagement with game music and sound will be mostly analytical, but there will be an opportunity for a creative final project for those students who might be interested. No prior music courses are required, although some familiarity with musical terminology and experience playing video games may prove useful.
