At this month’s Boston Post Mortem, Duncan Watt of Fastestmanintheworld Music will present “One Hand Up the Player’s Skirt: Music As An Element of Game Design.”

With the advent of next-gen consoles, and faster, more powerful PCs, opportunities abound for game designers to take advantage of music’s innate ability to directly connect with a player’s emotions. Dynamic music systems, advanced audio engines and robust storage/delivery set the stage for music to quickly surpass the linear ‘underscore’ role it plays in film and break new ground, providing designers direct access to and control of the player’s thoughts and reactions in real time.

The will be held next Wednesday at 7pm at The Skellig in Waltham. Visit the Boston Post Mortem website for more information.
