I uploaded a new album on Bandcamp! It’s an assortment of music I’ve written over the years.

I’ve already shared some of these tracks in previous entries. But most of them have only been heard by a select few.

I’ll continue adding to this album as I write other random musical bits. You can listen to the album on my site, or on Bandcamp.

Rebound open beta, y’all!

Hey, guys! It’s finally here: the open beta of this goofy game I’ve been working on for two years.

Play it here .

I also uploaded the soundtrack to Bandcamp. You can listen to it here .

If you’ve been following Rebound’s development, thanks for hanging in there with me. There’s plenty more to do, but for now, I just want to bask in the sweet aroma of this milestone.

Mmm. Stonaroma.

album cover?

So I’ve been goofing around with Hexels. It’s a fun tool, and even if you have no idea what you’re doing (like me), you can come up with some lovely images in a short amount of time.

This might be a pipe dream at this point, but I’ve played around with the idea of releasing the music for Rebound as a paid download.

I sat down last night and worked on a rough sketch for a potential album cover. It’s kind of bare, but I think I like the overall design.

One more example of me doing things I’m not qualified to do.

I’m starting to think that audacity is the most valuable resource that a game developer can acquire. The personality trait, not the program. Although, Audacity is pretty helpful, too.

Here is a sample of the music for the Thermosphere.

This was one of the first tracks I wrote for Rebound.  It was originally intended for the desert, but a friend told me that it sounded more like space music.

I concur.

It’s actually a mashup of the Korg DS-10 and M01 programs, so the textures are a little more filled-out than normal.

This is the music for the Prologue.  You might notice a stylistic difference between this and the other tracks I’ve posted for Rebound.  That’s because this was made with the Korg M01 for Nintendo DS.  It’s a really fun program.

I’m hoping to use the M01 to create a distinction between the music you hear in the game’s Prologue and Epilogue and the music you hear in the worlds between.  This goes back to my decision to make Marty’s resolution different from the creatures around him.  I wanted to represent this musically as well as visually, if I could.  The M01 definitely has a different feel from the DS-10.

Enjoy.
