Hi again! Time for another monthly recap about what I've been up to during July! In short:
- I won stuff!
- I wrote a couple of new tracks and released some old ones under a CC license
- I'm now on Patreon
- I'll attend Gamescom 2015 (wanna hang out?)
A Winner Is You
I haven't won much in my life as of yet but July was a wild month because I won twice in a row!
First I won a coffee cup in the Sweet Justice Sound Competition and shortly after I won two sample libraries by Hzandbits Sound Effects. For a moment I considered playing the lottery to put my new lucky streak to the test :).
New Tracks & Free Tracks
I finished & uploaded some new tracks this month!
This one is a experiment between accoustic guitar and some orchestral elements. I am dabbling in the realm of orchestral music every now and then, trying to figure out how much I can get out of the Native Instruments Orchestral libraries that I own. Obviously I am not trained in classical orchestration so there's a lot to learn and improve!
This track started as a melody on my accoustic as well (I might want to record the original idea at some point) but then turned into this chiptunesque short track (it might feature the most annoying arpeggio line you've ever listened to).
At the beginning of the month I also decided to release a couple of tracks that didn't make into any project under a CC license for free on my soundcloud and on opengameart before they collect any more dust on my harddrive!
A couple of them already made it into fun little games. You can check them out here (the maker of Fling Em didn't use a loop though):
I plan to update the Soundcloud playlist and my OpenGameArt account regularly whenever I have a new track worth sharing.
I'm on Patreon
As a consequence of sharing some of my tracks / audio sound effects on OpenGameArt I decided to setup a Patreon account to give people the opportunity to give something in return if they so desire.
I plan to share tracks, single sound effects, atmos, and maybe even Ableton Live & or Synth Presets. I still have to decide on a schedule but for now I'm going with roughly one post per week.
Lets meet at Gamescom!
I'll be at the Gamescom 2015 in Cologne at the beginning of August. If you'd like to hang out and chat or maybe have a drink or two just drop me a mail! I'd love to meet some of my Game Audio peers there!
Until then have a nice time everyone!
