The Machines

The Machines is a single-player interactive desktop experience demonstrating techniques in electronic music/audio programming within UE5 using MetaSounds Audio Engine. The focus is on nonlinearity and is designed primarily as an audio experience. The player explores three distinct spaces, each focused on an aspect of sound design and electronic music composition. There is no objective as such, except to explore the three spaces: each space offering a different interactive experience.

Each sound interaction sphere is unique and spawned randomly within the space (both horizontally and vertically). Some can be picked up by the player and moved around the space to change parameters or moved towards each other to create layers of sound, leading to an endless stream of music, shaped by the player.
