"There are two musics (at least so I have always thought):
the music one listens to, the music one plays. These two
musics are two totally different arts, each with its own history,
its own sociology, its own aesthetics, its own erotic"

It really bothers me that légumes is French for vegetables, but English nabbed it and said, no it's beans and bean plants

@gamesformusic@tabletop.vip avatar

@ronanmcd darn, here (pl) this word core means only a family of desserts (pudding etc.)
-- etymology went through legumine (caseine) most probably, cause of milk connection.

Voluntarily learning music theory whenever I feel like it because why not. I like to think people are horrified of the things I like to do for fun.

@gamesformusic@tabletop.vip avatar

@writeblankspace It looks like a graphic score! :)

Does anybody have any experience of Zoom breakout rooms? I'm going to try them with one of my classes tomorrow and have never done it before and have no way to practise beforehand.

@gamesformusic@tabletop.vip avatar


Do you mean practically or as a concept?
Experience in running or also participating?

For the editor here, during many occasions at conferences and such, max 5 people was the best limit. But for language practice could imagine it to be lower.

Would you a micro-?

Unpaid help, alas. You'll get an in-file credit for the feedback. Publication itself will be free.

It might be helpful if you know what a peer review is, :) but you don't need to be a credentialed academic – it will just be fun if you can pose as one!

The game was tested. It's before formatting (6 A4s, ~2k words). Takes ~15 min. to play but feedback from reading is enough for the authors.

DM or reply please. :)

@gamesformusic@tabletop.vip avatar

This "call for " for an early version of a musical /, still awaits response.

It's the first for the authors, who are experienced board game designers (so for them this type of looking for feedback is normal ;p).

🔁 Maybe some boosting for the call-post above would help?
👶 Or suggestions for making it less offensive to the ttrpg culture?

@eniko@peoplemaking.games avatar

curious about something. wanna see how big the community on mastodon is. are you a game developer? plz boost for reach

EDIT: i cannot prescribe that anyone is a gamedev or in what capacity. if you don't self identify as a gamedev, vote no, if you self identify as a professional gamedev even if you're doing it alongside a dayjob, pick the professional category. there are no wrong answers

@gamesformusic@tabletop.vip avatar


This maybe a language issue, does it mean working with computer games in modern English? Or different types of games are included in the term? 🤔

gamesformusic, to accessibility
@gamesformusic@tabletop.vip avatar

question. Does anyone know if using images is a good solution for screen readers?

Examples that we use so far could be: 📜 📷 ✱ †

Thinking of more.

(Alas, these general issues on our are not fine -- 's stiff engine doesn't help with accessibility).

If you could mash together any two ideas, what would they be?

@gamesformusic@tabletop.vip avatar


Yeah, tried that... Still trying.

Took two favorite things, one based on sounds, another with rules.
Ended up writing many words. ;)

    A new article, not exactly ready, but worth mentioning. It is all about traditional musical games.
    So far it mentions cultures: Ainu, Inuit, Japanese, Lummi, Maori, and Polish.


    Please, if you know about any traditional games that let players make music (and considerably shape it -- a background song is not enough here ;) ) please let know in any available way. Serious sources are cool too! ;)

    Here's an list of that let you engage with ! :)


    Some great examples there, including free downloads. , , even some straight-up . :)

    It was exactly two years ago, when G4M co-organized a "Game Design for Composers" workshop at Break My Game Discord server.

    It was focused on the notions of balance and meaningful choice and applying them to participatory open scores.

    Good times! :)
    (i.e. looking narrowly at this specific event, you know, online event, two years ago, global reasons...)

    Promotional images attached.

    AMA? ;) (hard sell, long shot, tough cookie...) ;)

    An online poster done on a predator handshake meme template. One hand has a logo of Break My Game community, the other hand has Games for Music wiki logo. Details for the event are where the hands meet and are as follows: Game Design for Composers Discord workshop 30 May 2021

    The list is ordered m/l by their level of Mastodon activity... ;)
