New Komiku : Poupi's Incredible Adventures !

CC0 Monplaisir

Hello there ! It's Komiku/Monplaisir, I hope you're okay ! Here is my new album "Poupi's Incredible Adventures !", which is an album of 70 tracks dedicated to my plush dog Poupi. At first, I thought to make this soundtrack as a cartoon soundtrack but it slowly became a videogame like soundtrack. I hope you'll like it, don't hesitate to send me feedback about it ! I leave you with the soundtrack and the pitch of their adventure :

It's the story of Poupi, a little dog who need to avoid the accomplishement of a prophecy. So, in one week, they has to travel through space to find the music sheet of serenity, and to go after the horizon to find the time flute. In their way, they will meet Mr Paillettes, a glitter with a crooner voice, and Princess Cheese Burger, the strongest person in the universe. Together, they'll need to find the tiniest place to play the time flute.

The story is more developped on my bandcamp if you want to read about it. If you wanna usethe story or the music, please go for it, it's all in Creative Commons 0. Don't hesitate to contact me, I'm always curious to know what you do with my music !

Thanks for reading this post and listening to my music, I love you all <3

Da ! Heard It Records: Net-label & free culture

Founded in 2006, eclectic label Da ! Heard It Records aims to promote new artists and new music. D!HR is a label that is open to the world, be it to professional artists or to amateurs, and accessible to all listeners, as per its engagement to free and free-of-charge culture as well as the nature of its publications.

From nocturnal peregrinations to musical events and multiform creations, it’s been almost ten years since Max Parasite first started observing the Da ! Heard It Records label; ten years of dealing with artists with terribly improbably works: unrestrained circuit bending, grandiose chiptune, disheveling catharsis, or cavernous industrial ambient.

Anything is possible.

From the start, it seemed clear that this small community very engaged in free access to culture needed to be talked about. The idea of a documentary soon surfaced. After digging deep into the arcane corners of the Internet to investigate the beginnings of European 8-bit, Max Parasite found a bunch of the label’s artists: Ben et Béné, Computer truck, Eat Rabbit, Infecticide, Jacques Cochise, Klaten, Le Matin, Sidabitball, Skinfaxe, Sputnik Booster.

From this resulted a unique documentary about an autonomous microcosm as astonishing as it is obscure: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e8UoUJha3zw&feature=youtu.be

All of the releases introduced in this documentary are available for free listening and free downloading at the label’s site: http://www.daheardit-records.net.

Making Music for Unknown Worlds

How do you make music for a world that doesn't exist? This was the question I began my project with. To answer it, I have just released an album -- Songs From An Unmade World 2 -- which features both standalone and loopable tracks that are available for indie game developers and designers to use in their own projects. These tracks are inspired by old-school adventure/RPG video game music, and they mix classic chiptune sounds with more modern electronic elements. In releasing this album, it is my hope fill a void for game creators by placeing high-quality music in the Creative Commons so that projects on a tight budget come to life!

As a composer and music producer for almost five years, I have worked collaborated with makers in dance, theater, film, and more. But making music for games, to me, feels like an entirely different, exciting category of composition.

The biggest difference comes in the way music is literally woven into the fabric of your players' experiences. In film, theater, and dance, music generally lives a linear existence -- bits of music are tied to specific moments that the performers and audience experience simultaneously. In this framework, music becomes strongly tied to emotional moments.

In video games, however, music often serves a much more textural purpose -- the player lives inside of your music. They encounter your notes, rhythms, and melodies around every corner as they play the game. Figuring out how to make an almost living soundtrack is a much more intriguing puzzle to solve than working on a linear project. Both Songs From An Unmade World 2, and its forerunner, Songs From An Unmade World (released on FMA last fall), were a fantastic exploration for me in this organic side of musical world-building. 

I hope you're reading this because there's something useful for you in one of these two albums! If so, I would love for you to drop me a line on Twitter. If you're just here because you are curious about video game music, that is awesome in and of itself -- there is so much great video game music out there to discover. Happy exploring!

Goto80 and the Uwe Schenk Band - “The Ferret Show” (Upitup Records 052)

Questo album è uno spasso!

Ha prepotentemente invaso l'audio delle mie ultime giornate. Una miscela esplosiva di chiptune music, swing e jazz che suona alle mie orecchie come qualcosa di mai ascoltato fino ad ora...
