Locus Sono: A Listening Game for NIME

Smallwood, Scott

Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

This paper/poster describes the development of an experimental listening game called Locus Sono; a 3D audio puzzle game where listening and exploration are the key forms of interaction. The game was developed by a motivation to create an interactive audio environment in which sound is the key to solving in-game puzzles. This work is a prototype for a larger planned work and illustrates a first step in a more complex audio gaming scenario, which will also be partially described in this short paper
