This thesis addresses three main questions:
1. In what ways does music contribute to the game player’s experience?
- A more general enquiry, drawing from a number of different fields, and hoping to identify some of the roles played by music in video games.
2. To what extent are non-western musical instruments, patterns, and other stylistic features used in video game audio?
- A more focused enquiry, looking specifically at the above aspects.
3. What approaches are used in successfully incorporating these non-Western elements in video game audio?
- An attempt to determine the approaches present, and their effectiveness.
