I was temped to just send our devs the City Escape mp3 as the track for that level lol

Thank you! Cityskape basically felt like a really fun Harmony assignment because I wanted to use a lot of tonic major 7th chords and that meant that I had to remember how to set up and resolve 7th chords properly

Cityskape is my favorite. By the time I realized that was a misspelling I was so used to calling it that that that's just the song's title now.
omg I thought that was intentional

e: actually I'm thinking about it and I think I was thinking of the first movement of Beethoven's 6th symphony????? Not sure why my brain drew that parallel but there you go
mess with the NOOT you get a DOOT!

yo I **** love Beethoven so I am 1000% ok with that fam.

Also, you may be wondering why I haven't linked to the game yet. The reason is because the game is actually literally, and I do mean literally, unplayable. The Game Jam was an exercise in teamwork in more ways than one. We failed the exercise, but it was fun.

TLDR we wanted to make an animal crossing-y home decorator with 3 nice settings to decorate, and then 2 dudes joined in and wanted to blow **** up in VR so now...... well I'll show you how it ended up via A Tweet, but be informed that if you try to play it at home you uhhh can't. The controls are locked and you have to pull up task manager to quit the game.

behold whatever the hell this is:

on an entirely different note i had a really good time composing sound effects to go with bit/cheer notifications on stream. i tried to make the base one actually nice and then just turned it into an increasingly ridiculous visual and audio ****post.



audio is very quiet for reasons i am still grappling with but..... i spent so much more time getting the echo on the gun to be just right than anyone will ever know lmfao

That sounds like a pretty good combination if it's done correctly. I like forcing things to go together that are complete opposites. Still waiting for a turn-based RTS (that's right).

I'd get the Limited Edition which comes with a Pet Rock and two jars of mayonnaise, signed by Bill Murry in Japanese.

Trying to make myself actually be musically productive more. Anyway right now it's just a midi piano skeleton but I'm working on an arrangement of Crimson Pride, my favorite track from Tales of the Abyss:

Revisited an old project.



I took Yggdrasill's theme from the Symphonia OST, which is this badass minor-key dramatic villain song with lots of gongs and church organ and **** and sounds all evil and hella dope; but re-imagined it in a major key as if it's his heroic theme song from before everything went to crap. I composed it last year but I completely re-voiced and re-balanced it and I like it a lot better now.

The original song for ref:
