Bits and Pieces



Kenneth McAlpine explores how the combination of hardware and performative coding shaped the sound of early video game music, and how it changed the way that composers conceived of and used music.


Kenneth McAlpine is an award-winning composer, musician, and technologist. He currently works at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, The University of Melbourne as an Enterprise Fellow in Interactive Composition.
