Interesting Decisions (2016) is a "neon-packed walking-simulator," and it is meant as an interactive commentary on the "homogenizing effects of technology" and "the new trends of video-game voyeurism" (Source). In 2016, Hutchinson performed the game live at the 2016 Kyma International Sound Symposium. In Leicester, Great Britain. A composer, new-media artist, and "mad scientist who combines traditional music with digital technology and creative electronics", Hutchinson is acting here as a player/performer who sends data into the Unity3D game engine, which subsequently sends OSC messages to Kyma based on the player/performer’s interactions within a procedurally generated world Unity. Kyma then generates the “soundtrack” to the player/performer’s experience in real time.

Hutchinson has been creating playful projects at the intersection of art, music, technology, and society, including the stunning Plurality Wins (developed with Paul Turowski in 2017) in which players use acoustic musical performance (via the computer’s microphone) to control robots exploring an orb in deep space. The clarinet interface is simply brilliant. Hutchinson will perform the game live at the 2017 of the Kyma International Sound Symposium.
