I’ve become really intrigued with sound lately. I had, quite honestly, given up on sound after having attended several lectures and awkward sound/noise concerts which made me come to the conclusion that this was an art form that I would never understand. But something shifted.
Just watch this AMAZING mini-documentary of basically a conversation between Björk and David Attenborough about sound, science, music and nature, while documenting the work and thoughts behind Björk’s Biophilia. It’s absolutely fascinating and well worth your time.
Wasn’t that just inspiring?
I adore the way she’s using technology and sound to explore or I would say “read” nature. My mind has been blown on so many levels. So I’ll just list some of them:
I’d really like to go to PAX Prime! I mean … I really really really wanna go. It seems like the perfect injection of gaming inspiration that I need. Since I have no money – I’m looking for creative ways of getting me there so if you have any good ideas – let me know! I can write, talk, network and sell. I think I need about $3000.
There’s two game companies that I adore and would love to work for someday that are going; D-Pad Studios and Rain.
D-Pad’s lovely and gorgeous Owlboy has been picked as one of the PAX10. So incredibly proud of and excited for them! What an honour! I already have an beautiful image in my mind of Phil Fish and Wil Wheaton playing Owl Boy together with huge grins on their faces! Just look at the beauty:
And today they’re releasing the game Savant – which you should play as soon as it’s released!
Rain will also be there with their upcoming game Teslagrad! I love this game – or I guess it’s more correct that I love where this game comes from and I love that it’s just the beginning of a wonderful world that they’ve created. And I’ve certainly enjoyed playing the game.
They’ll also be at PAX! If you’re there make sure to stop by and be smitten! Thomas and Magnus will be representing and they’re definitely two of my favourites – SO worth taking the time to talk to!
They’re also on Steam Greenlight and they need your vote – so go do that now!
I’m also secretly hoping for both of them to officially release their games at Konsoll 2013.
I really need to come up with a plan to get myself there other than winning the lottery!
