This dissertation explores a novel approach to game music that addresses the limitations of conventional game music systems in supporting a dynamically changing narrative. In the proposed approach,…
A MIDI Sequencer That Widens Access to the Compositional Possibilities of Novel Tunings
Hex replaces the piano roll used in conventional MIDI sequencers with a two-dimensional lattice roll in order to enable the intuitive visualization and dynamic manipulation of tuning.
Methodological approaches to the evaluation of game music systems
Four questions are posed that researchers could assess in order to evaluate different aspects of a game music system, focusing on the music's effect on the game playing experience, whether the music leads to a more enjoyable experience, and how the music itself is perceived.

Hex Player - A Virtual Musical Controller
A playable musical interface for tablets and multi-touch tables, inspired by the Thummer, and consists of an array of virtual buttons that facilitate the playing not just of conventional Western scales but also a wide variety of microtonal generalized diatonic scales known as moment of symmetry, or well-formed, scales.
Algorithmic music as intelligent game music
This work describes an alternative approach in which music is algorithmically generated based on a set of high-level musical features that can be controlled in real-time according to a player’s progression through a game narrative.
New tonalities with the Thummer and The Viking
The Thummer and The Viking render non-standard tunings more physically, pedagogically, and aesthetically accessible.
Spectral pitch distance and microtonal melodies
We present an experiment designed to test the effectiveness of spectral pitch distance at modeling the degree of “affinity” or “fit” of pairs of successively played tones or chords (spectral pitch…
Nonuniform distortionless transmission lines
Contents Heavside's classical condition for distortionless signalling, g/c=r/l, is generalized to nonuniform transmission lines. The resulting class of nonuniform lines possesses several interesting…
