Dr. Stephanie Lind guest-edited a Special Theme Issue on Musical Disruption in Video Games for The Soundtrack a journal focusing on the interaction of sound in media.  The six articles in Volume 11, nos. 1-2 (including Lind’s own work, an analysis of soundscape in Assassin’s Creed) all focus on this phenomenon, and how to address it in analyzing games-as-texts.  They were selected because of their unique approaches to the topic of musical disruption, but also because of their focus on games and genres outside of the usual analytical canon such as Doki Doki Literature Club, Small Radios Big Televisions, and FIFA. Dr Lind’s article specifically examines how game design exploits players’ expectations by setting up expectations, but then subverting and disrupting these to create new modes of gameplay.
