Last week we discussed classic theatrical plays in a contemporary context, and we’ve briefly touched the topic of online slots and how they are connected to the theatre. Even though it may seem that the two topics have nothing, or very little in common, we feel that there is a stronger connection here. Now, we wanted to discuss how music is related to online slots, and you might be surprised just how much that is the case.
Sound Effects and Music in Online Slots
Most, well, almost all online slots come with music and sound effects and the audio can be just as important as the video. Compare that with the theatre where the costumes and all other visual elements are equally important as the music, especially if the play is a musical, or at least if it includes some musical elements.
Incidental music is very important, even for plays where music isn’t a central element of the action. This type of music just serves as a companion to the action, and we have something similar in modern slot games where the sound effects accompany the gameplay, the action, and in most cases, these sounds match the theme, they are in accordance with the theme.
So, if the slot game in question is a sports-themed game, the sound effect that are added usually include ball clapping, audience applauding and other sounds that you may here at a sports stadium or an arena.
Music as a Central Theme
Music has played a role ever since the birth of theatre. Even if you go back to fifth century before Christ, you will find that Ancient composers created odes that were sung in between two spoken sections of a play. In fact, actors even played to those odes. So, in short, it has never been possible to imagine theatre and plays without music. And same goes for slots. It is not possible to create a playable slot game without adding proper sound effects, and even better if there is actual music.
Just like some of the most successful plays have been musical, there have also been quite a few successful slot games where music was a central theme. There have been at least several slot games based on music acts, singers and guitarists and these games always include the actual music created by the protagonist. So, if you play one of these games, you will also be able to listen to the actual music tracks which makes the whole gaming experience a lot more unique and authentic.
Music Makes You Happy
On the other hand, if you feel like going to the theatre, check which plays are at your local theatre. Perhaps you will be able to find spare tickets for a good musical.
