The University of Kent is to become part of a new research network which aims to shape the future of innovation in the games industry.
Dr David Roesner, Senior Lecturer in Drama and Theatre in the School of Arts, will lead on a research project titled ‘Guitar Heroes in Music Education? Music-based video games and their potential for musical performative creativity’. The research will connect arts and humanities academics with video game designers, artists and musicians to explore the creative potential and influence music games, such as Guitar Hero, can have on the future of game design and music education.
You can follow the progress of this project on its dedicated blog here: http://music-games-creativity-network.blogspot.co.uk/
‘Guitar Heroes in Music Education?’ is one of six research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) which make up the AHRC Video Games Research Network.
