Video Game Music Trivia Interactive (2017)

Bullock Texas State History Museum

Pong to Pokémon exhibition

Project Description

Created in collaboration with the Bullock Museum's curatorial and education staff as part of he temporary exhibition Pong to Pokémon: The History of Electronic Gaming.

Curators recognized that music and sound effects are a critical aspect of game playing experiences but did not have sufficient artifacts to demonstrate this point. The interactive was developed to acknowledge this importance.

 

A trivia game format was chosen to allow for selections of iconic game scores both old and new. A historical cross section of musical examples allowed for discussion of technological advancements in sound generation capabilities in the games industry over time.
