Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay has been to research about adaptive music by analyzing and designing a music system which could handle adaptive music for our game A Story About My Uncle. This essay also goes through the thought  process and techniques used when composing adaptive music, for example vertical re-orchestration and horizontal re-sequencing. For designing the system, I used an object oriented analysis and design approach, utilizing two of its models, the use case model and the class model. With the help of these models and a few system requirements based on the music composition, I was able to design a system which handles the composed music as planned. Although the system works in-game, there are still some issues that should be resolved to perfect the adaptive music experience.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med uppsatsen har varit att forska om adaptiv musik genom att analysera och designa ett system som kan hantera adaptiv musik till vårt spel A Story About My Uncle. Denna uppsats går också igenom tankeprocessen och tekniker som används när man komponerar adaptive music, som t.ex. vertikal re-orkestrering och horisontel re-sekvensering. För att designa systemet använde jag mig av två modeller inom objekt orienterad analys och design, fallmodellen och klassmodellen. Med hjälp av dessa två modeller och ett fåtal systemkrav baserad på den komponerade musiken kunde jag designa ett system som hanterar musiken som det hade varit tänkt. Även om systemet fungerar i spelet, så finns det fortfarande några problem som borde lösas för att fullända det adaptiva musiksystemet
