Developer and musician Nils Iver Holtar’s formative gaming experiences all came with memorable soundtracks – starting with classic NES titles in the late 80s. When it came time to work on his master’s thesis, Nils conceived of Audioverdrive, an iPad space shooter that communicates bi-directionally with Ableton Live, creating a live soundtrack to the game in real-time, triggered by the in-game action. 

Here is the Audioverdrive demo by Nils itself :
