  1. I really love to see concepts where music creation is combined with video game mechanics in a more abstract way.

    Sure – games like Rock Band, SingStar, etc are fun as group activity. But I think the really interesting concepts are those where you actually create music while playing and not only play along with a song written by someone else.

    Generative music is about musical freedom (one might say randomness) within a certain set of rules and after all, many video games work the same way: you can interact, create and destroy within given boundaries – then take games like REZ or Fract OSC. That’s already the right direction.

    But I think there is still way more room for such concepts – you know, where you don’t “work” on “producing” with your computer, but rather “play” your computer like an instrument, literally 🙂

  2. Flappy Bird meets that game where you’re racing along a space highway collecting colored sound chips the name of which I can’t remember because I never played it, and I only found out about Flappy Bird a couple of weeks ago so I’ve never played that, either. But I can see how this could become as addicting as both of them together.
