Almost every computer gamer has the experience that a certain game title stands clear in his/her memory because of its excellent music. In some way the music made this particular game into something special. Today it seems like the “dynamic soundtrack” for computer games is becoming more and more popular. But how can we make room for the unique music in a computer game if the music changes every time the game is played? With a critical point of view, we want to examine the music’s influence on a computer game and the computer game’s influence on music. We want to inspire the reader in alternative ways of thinking the game/music constellation. For the benefit of the game and the benefit of the music.
