From the extremely simple 8-bit beeps and boops of the early video games to the latest sophisticated soundtracks of the new generation consoles, music has proven itself to be wholly unique when it comes to gameplay.

Digital Curator Foteini Aravani will be joined by Dr Tim Summers of Royal Holloway University, gaming writer Jack Gosling, and game designer Jon Hare, of Sensible Software.
