Well…I’ve quit my job of 5 years and I’m going into the new year focusing all of my attention on my music projects! It’ll be a good experience, I think. Part of it will be writing music for video games and other media, which I’m quite excited to get in to! :)
I’m currently collaborating with a programmer to make a music program / music toy / “game” for the XBOX 360. It’s called EZ Muze: Hamst3r Edition (EZMHE). It’ll be a downloadable game available from the Xbox Live Marketplace. There is no release date yet but EZMHE is receiving performance enhancements and new loops every day and is starting to really shape up, so it shouldn’t be too far off.
My job in this project is to make all of the music loops you’ll have access to. I’ve done nearly 200 loops so far! The mix of sounds and styles is quite varied, still all of the loops will fit together quite nicely. Absolutely any combination of loops in EZMHE should be harmonious.
EZMHE has two editing modes; easy mode and advanced mode. In advanced mode you can cut the loops in to smaller pieces and rearrange them. You’ll also have access to additional tracks for in Advanced Mode, for extra awesomeness.
Here’s a video of EZ Muze: Hamst3r Edition in action showing off the more Drum and Bass centric loops and some chopped up screaming:
I’ve also put together some cover art for EZMHE.
So yeah, that’s what I’m up to.
I’ll let you know when EZ Muze: Hamst3r Edition is ready to go so you can check it out on the XBOX Live Marketplace. :)
