How and why do music, sound and voices affect the players’ minds so immediate? How does the brain deal with audiovisual information and what consequences does that have for the developer? How can music and sound influence the gaming experience and give new ideas to game designers? What are the functions of music beyond “creating a mood” and why should game makes consider audio aspects already in the early phase of the development process. How can a proper audio planning avoid costs and make audio a powerful tool in the hands of developers?

Jörg Mackensen (MD toneworx studios), Kai Rosenkranz (composer, Gothic 3, The Long Journey Home) and Helge Borgarts (composer, Bring Them Home, Moorhuhn Tiger & Chicken) talk about different aspects of music and audio in video games by presenting different showcases and ideas.
