Topic: The New Frontiers of Interactive Audio in Digital Storytelling

6:10-6:30: Richard E. Flanagan (Creative Director at Ubisoft and Independent)
                 "From the Sound Up - Designing the World of FRACT OSC through music."   

                 Talk description: 
                 In this design-focused talk, Richard Flanagan will present the inspiration, methodology and implementation of
                 the world & systems in FRACT OSC. FRACT OSC is a first-person exploration puzzle game built on a world of
                 sound where player actions directly influence the musical reactivity of the game and contribute to an evolving
                 electronic music score. FRACT OSC achieves deep sound-reactivity by employing a custom sound engine
                 focused on dynamic real-time synthesis. This talk will break down the hows & whys of the world structure,
                 a deep dive into aspects of musical puzzle design, some mistakes along the way and a live demo showcasing
                 the game.
