Sound system

Jan you had an interesting keynote on AdventureX about seamless sound without loops. For those who have not seen the video, can you explain how that works?

Thank you! Yes, J.U.L.I.A.: Among the Stars is using procedurally generated music which is able to adapt to player's action. I call it "mood composer" because it allows fluent organic transitions between different moods. The whole sound system infrastructure is working through careful musical object generator which is based upon theory of montage and collage of isolated musical objects (technique used in contemporary music by Miloslav Istvan and others). The atomized music source allows to create extremely long music without excessive data scope since it's live-sequenced. Also I am able to generate both ambient and more melodic music through this method.

Interessing. Sounds like a similar approach Witch Beam is using in "Assault Android Cactus". There the sound has transitions depending on the performance of the player. (Note: AAC is not an adventure)

The key difference is though, that in J.U.L.I.A. it's not only matter of transitions because the whole music is generated this way. The transitions are merely a result of music generated in real time. :)
