Game music: from composer to consumer
Dalarna University, School of Humanities and Media Studies, Sound and Music Production.

Abstract [en]

By conducting an experiment involving interviews with successful video game music composers

about the emotions they wish to convey to the players with their music, and a survey questioning

consumers about what emotions they actually experienced while listening to these musical pieces,

this bachelor's thesis tries to provide a deeper understanding for music in games and the impact it

has on the player and whether or not the three composers that has been interviewed has succeeded

with conveying the emotions they wished to convey to their consumers. The results showed that

each composer that has participated has been able to convey the music's intended emotions to their

consumers more or less. Almost none of the musical pieces used stood out as wrongly perceived by

the survey participants. The preconceptions we have about emotions in music, both generally and in

video games, has become so deeply rooted that by only listening to a musical piece one can

determine its emotive state and character.
