Last semester I created original music and sound design for a Cogswell College branding animation, which was a special project coinciding with my Digital Sound Design class. This video recently premiered on YouTube for your viewing (and listening!) pleasure.

Monocle Man, Available on OUYA
Last month, the Ouya game console had its official retail launch. One of the launch titles, Monocle Man, was my most recent game scoring project. Combining work from Davain Martinez, Glen Jackson, Cameron McLaughlin, Richard Ash, and myself, I produced a 10-track chiptune (8-bit) soundtrack for this quirky puzzle-platformer about a sentient, dapper grain of sand.
Cogswell Fusion Awards 2013 Wins
This past month, on June 22nd, Cogswell College hosted the 2013 Fusion Awards, which gave me what is likely my greatest level of music recognition to date. I won TWO awards, and was nominated for an additional two categories!
My wins were Best Music Production for , a track I composed and produced for a console game in development, and Best Game for Wizard Prison, a title I am currently working on in various capacities, including as the sole programmer. (The latter award was shared amongst the development team.)
Worlds Apart, the award-winning animated film created by “Project X Productions” at Cogswell College, is now available on YouTube! I worked as the Music Production Engineer for Worlds Apart back in 2011 as production finally wrapped. My job was to assist composers Jeremiah Dias and Cameron McLaughlin in creating a score that was tailor-made for the film, and stayed true to the director’s vision.

Dec. 2012 Status Update
I’ve been working on a good deal of original music this year, and there are several tracks I’ve created that are either complete or 99% there. Unfortunately, most of them are for albums that are not yet finished. I’m not going to give time estimates on any of these, since they are not solely under my control, and are always subject to change. However, I’d at least like to share the names of the albums and tracks to list the “coming attractions”.
I have officially launched a new alias for myself: Tortoisone
This is to be used for commercial electronic music productions. My other music compositions, including game soundtracks, will continue to use the name Kaleb Grace.
