In the past 50 years, gaming has become a multicultural phenomenon transforming the ways we play, work, and explore. We learn, exercise, and entertain (exertain) ourselves and others via games. The analog and digital platforms with their tools and controllers have been continuously expanded to facilitate access to novel stimulations and content. New rules, challenges, and awards have tantalized growing generations of players, engaging them in competitive interactions. The arts in their multitude of expressions have been at the axis of game design and practice. This program showcases just that: a variety of approaches in musicalizing and gaming.
