Disquiet

On January 31st, 2015, I recorded this piece. For some reason, I hit the record button and played. This is all of the notes. There are no other takes; No other files from that day. I don’t remember what I was doing, but I was apparently dealing with fear and hope and apprehension… at least that is what it sounds like to me today – months later. Every now and again, I’ll find these files – they are something of an emotional journal. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Download has the original MIDI file!

Stuff Review: Hexy

Hexy from Valcour Games.

Today’s stuff review is virtual stuff… possibly the best mobile game I’ve ever played; Hexy (available for iOS and Android). It is free, but give them the $2 if you like the game.

So, why is this game so good?
It is beautiful. The artwork leads to very pleasing combinations of colour and form. I’ve considered doing a painting of some of the game boards. They really do look good enough to put up on a wall.
It is simple. Tap a hex and it rotates. Line up all the forms, and you win! Doesn’t get much easier than that.
It demands no time. If you have 30 seconds and you’re stressed out in line at the store, Hexy gots what you need! If you have a 45 minute wait at the ER, and you need to not be reminded of the searing pain you’re in… Hexy is your friend!
It has no end. These are not people-made puzzles. They are procedurally generated… You can play thousands of games and not repeat a board.
It is satisfying. There are a pile of tiny logic problems that spider out into larger logic problems. You can play on three sizes of boards, so if the large board causes issues – just move to a smaller one!

The music is excellent! Just kidding. There is no music. It is the Hello Kitty of the game world. Its personality is whatever you want it to be. Casual poking? Speed running? Something else? Hexy is THERE for you! Hexy is my friend. It keeps down the anxiety. It makes pretty things to look at. Go get it and make yourself a friend! :-)

Universal

I think I wrote this piece last week. It sounds pretty foreign to me… I don’t remember much of it at all. Nice, though! I think it is a nice piece. I know I didn’t write this for any specific film or game – it was just for me. Must have been in quite a state if I needed to make this one…

I generally don’t produce music for the mood that I am in, but rather the mood I want to be in. So, this is what I wanted to feel like last week!

Floating and grounding, this piece has a lot of bass guts but still a lot of reach on the high end. Perfect for retrospectives, automobile time lapses, drunken frat parties (black and white), and studying montages.

When circuits throw a party, I imagine it sounds something like this. They can be a bit hyperactive at times. The super download comes with a more calm version at 120 beats per minute, and a crazy fast version at 180 beats per minute! All three versions loop perfectly, so you can make this as long as you need it!
