Scoping thesis topics

Trying to visualize all the relevant aspects of my research, where to start and where to go.

My primary motivation for this would be to enable myself to create meaningful video game music, expose myself to a mode of manifesting my creativity through sound design.

Anyone can pick up a DAW and poke around notes and plugins or record themselves play. I however, desire to be able to critically approach game design problems from sonic point of view and explore the necessary theoretical and practical frameworks for sound creation for the medium.

All together, my experience in this field amounts to 8 years of piano school and musical education, 3 years of industry game development and about 8 years of digital visual arts.
In hindsight, all the three fields are coming together to help me on my next step of creative development.
