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 College Fusion Awards 2013 Music Production Trophy

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 Monochromatic [download], 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.)

Dec. 2012 Status Update

The InStereoType group, who will release the album, AuRen [tentative title].

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”.

Cogswell Game Development Club Logo

This is an example of my graphic design and illustration work. The school’s mascot is a dragon, so I devised my own little dragon character for inclusion with the textual and other graphical elements. I created the entire logo in the span of a week, and added some additional effects soon afterwards. I may make some further improvements in the future, but I feel this is a good state for public display, and I’m happy with how well I was able to execute the creation.
