Students are introduced to elements of music and ways in which these elements may be used to create a musical style that enhances video games. The course emphasizes understanding the function of the score and how it relates to texture, color, and drama in music. Students explore their creativity using the tools available, work on projects of increasing complexity, and complete a score for their own video game as a final project. Listening skills, music vocabulary, and business and legal aspects of the profession are also studied. PREREQUISITE(S): GAM 426
