Sound art is an increasingly relevant and creative branch of art, exploring various social, economic, and academic ideas in real time. Sound artists look to the latest technology to record, replay, and remix sounds around them or create completely novel noises. GameWave is a museum installation which uses a game-like interface to turn music into a creative learning experience. Participants create their own music from well-known video game tunes via a classic handheld controller. As they alter the song, they have immediate visual and auditory feedback of the changes to the sounds. The waveform of the song changes while the altered music plays from the speakers. Overall, GameWave is a fun introduction to sound which encourages participants to create unique music in real time.
