Indie videogames can be quite difficult to work with as a composer. After two years of composing music for specific projects, they have been postponed indefinitely, cancelled, or aren't big enough in scope to be properly released. With a multitude of interesting and unique works that had no home, I decided to draw influence from my many experiences playing in everything from latin jazz bands to folk-inspired alternative groups and publish these works myself.
Each track is inspired by different games combined with different musical styles. Whether it be the Daft Punk/K.K. Slider hybrid that is 'Crunchy Clouds', the mallet percussion and Sitar in Spirit Meridian, or the influence from Disasterpeaces evocative soundtrack "Fez" I want each track to take the listener to a unique place.
As such, the track names are not my own. I asked my friends and family to suggest names, and I picked the ones I liked best. It was fantastic seeing the imagination that inspired each track, and the situations the might have occurred.
In the end, it is a project that summarizes my last few years before seeing a radical shift in the path moving forward. I will remember it fondly, and this album acts as my memento.
