Come learn how we built a level around learning to be a jazz musician, and how we built a jam session simulation! This talk will discuss how techniques from jazz improvisation can lead to engaging gameplay, and how we used dynamic and synthesized audio, combined with unique MIDI techniques, to build a call-and-response jam session interaction.
Attendees will learn how techniques from the world of jazz can lead to unique gameplay and audio opportunities.
